The C.O.M.P.O.S.T Act & Farm Bill 101 Mash-up
HB 4443 and SB 2388, and Farm Bill 101
A very important piece of national legislation is on the table right now that we think you should be aware of and that you can help with. The COMPOST Act is meant to do two things:
1. Keep compostable materials like food waste out of the landfill where they generate methane,
2. Create avenues for nutrient-rich compost to go onto the land to enrich soil and draw down carbon.

The introduction of the COMPOST Act is an important step towards a greener and more innovative waste reduction and recovery system for our country. Ask your lawmakers today to co-sponsor this bill: https://p2a.co/gqvrz7j

“The most rewarding part of getting involved with the NCCC is belonging to a group of people who back up their big ideas with hard work. The board is a working board, made up of people who appreciate compost and want to see it used more widely in our state. Our annual meetings and training workshops bring together people from different backgrounds with diverse agendas, proving that the composting industry has room for everyone. Each NCCC event I attend challenges me to think differently–and more deeply–about the choices I make.”
