Home Composting and Recycling Workshop 

Learn how to improve your trash management skills, reduce waste and create compost.

Did you know that 60% of solid waste is organic and can be composted? Do you understand how easy it is to recycle in Dutchess County? Our current recycling rate is 35% but can be improved,

Do you know what is recyclable, compostable or just plain garbage? Would you like to improve your soil and support waste reduction?

CCEDC Master Gardener Volunteers will help you understand how to successfully separate and dispose of garden and household waste, and provide training on home composting techniques and options. 

This workshop is offered as part of Arlington Central School District Adult Education. To register go to
