PA Resources Council Hosts 5 Online Backyard Composting, Recycling Workshops In February

The PA Resources Council will host five backyard composting and a recycling and waste reduction online workshops in February.

“Since launching online learning in 2020, PRC has received a tremendous amount of feedback concerning how the webinar format is an extremely convenient way to learn from the comfort of home,” according to PRC Education Specialist Nancy Martin.  “And the online format enables individuals throughout the Commonwealth to take part since webinars require no travel to a specific classroom location.”

Backyard Composting

Four online Backyard Composting Workshops will be held February 4, 9, 17 and 23 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Learn the benefits of backyard composting, including the overall process, methods for setting up a compost pile, proper maintenance and ways to use finished compost. 

The $70 course fee includes instruction plus a FreeGarden EARTH compost bin, which features an 82-gallon capacity ideal for both urban and suburban settings.

Individuals will register for a time to pick up compost bins after completing online instruction

Those living in the greater Philadelphia area will pick up compost bins at Rose Tree Park in Media, Delaware County, while those living in the greater Pittsburgh area will pick up their compost bins at PRC’s headquarters located on the North Side in Pittsburgh.

Recycling & Waste Reduction

PRC will offer a Recycling and Waste Reduction webinar on February 18 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
