Master Composter Recycler (MCR) is a free four-week education program offered in May 2019. Through training sessions, hands-on workshops, and facility tours, you will become more knowledgeable about how waste is managed in the Halifax region, from collection to processing. You will also learn how to reduce waste through backyard composting and other at-home solutions.
The MCR program is open to all Halifax Regional Municipality residents interested in becoming waste champions within their families, communities, and work places. MCR is new to Nova Scotia but has been a popular and long-standing program in other municipalities in Canada and the United States.
The MCR program can accommodate 20 participants who will be expected to attend all eight sessions during the month of May 2019. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the field locations, as outlined below.
When: May 1 – May 29, 2019. Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday mornings 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Where: Citadel Community Centre (located at Citadel High School), 1955 Trollope St, Halifax, NS, Room 101
