The Compost Education Program supports the goals of the Tompkins County Department of Recycling and Materials Management to divert compostable materials from the waste stream and thereby maximize waste reduction in Tompkins County. This mission is achieved by training and supporting community volunteers to educate and enthuse the public about the benefits and methods of composting.
