Register your interest for the next class.

This class is ideal for Porter County residents and those who work in the county who are interested in learning more about waste prevention, recycling, composting, and meeting others who have similar interests. 

The course features guest speakers and field trips that will help students gain environmental knowledge beyond their curbside 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.
