Take your waste reduction knowledge to the next level and make a difference!

**** Spring 2017 class has been cancelled See you in the fall! ****

Are you interested in joining us in the fall? Let us know here.

Porter County residents and those who work in Porter County interested in learning more about waste prevention, recycling, composting, and meeting others who have similar interests can register for this extensive seven week session and learn how to reduce their impact on the planet.

The course features guest speakers and field trips that will help students gain environmental knowledge beyond the blue bin. 

Topics include:

  • Waste prevention
  • Recycling processes
  • Household hazardous waste and alternatives
  • Vermicomposting and home composting
  • Water quality protection
  • Other recycling opportunities

The class is limited to 30 participants and costs $30. Applicants that apply after the class is full will be placed on a waiting list and notified when the next course is scheduled. Once training is completed, class participants commit to 30 hours of volunteer time to inspire others in their community to reduce waste in the home and at work.

What are you waiting for?
