A membership to the USCC provides organic waste recyclers access to valuable educational resources and training, networking opportunities and better visibility within the compost industry. To qualify for this offer, equipment purchases need to be made by Dec. 31, 2019.
“In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in the composting industry and the USCC is an important resource for anyone getting into the market, as well as recyclers that have been composting for years,” said Jay Sarver, commercial business manager at Vermeer. “The council is the authority on the industry’s best management practices and can help companies become a reputable compost producer as well as improve their efficiencies.”
