Jackson County Master Recycler Program

What is Jackson County Master Recycler Program?
The Jackson County Master Recycler program educates citizen volunteers to serve as waste diversion ambassadors in Jackson County. In November 2007, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality provided start-up funding to Jackson County for creation of a Master Recycler service program housed at OSU Extension Service. The Master Recycler program is funded entirely and advised by JCRP.

Each Spring, a 10-week training course educates 35 Jackson County residents and business and government representatives with a training manual, presentations from local and regional experts, and field trips on topics of recycling, waste prevention, composting, hazardous waste and the local solid waste infrastructure.

What does the Master Recycler Program do?
To become a Master Recycler, participants are required to invest at least 40 hours of volunteer annually contributing 1,400 hours of service towards waste reduction in Jackson County.

How does the Master Recycler Program benefit JCRP members?
