BETHESDA, MD, December 2012 : The U.S. Composting Council (USCC), the largest association in North America representing the composting industry, is pleased to receive news that Waste Expo will be enhancing its content to cover organics recycling and composting issues.

COMPOSTING_LOGO_200 (2)The USCC Board of Directors are also pleased that Waste Expo has hired Dr. Stu Buckner, long time Executive Director and previous USCC Board Member to help guide these efforts. Dr. Buckner's extensive experience in the organics industry will no doubt be of great value to Waste Expo attendees and exhibitors.

The USCC recognizes the need for greater access to the organics industry by Waste Expo attendees. All across North America, jurisdictions and their hauler partners are recognizing the value of recovering organics from the solid waste stream, whether it be yard trimmings, food scraps, and food soiled paper or non-hazardous liquid wastes, increasingly these materials are being segregated from the municipal waste stream and composted to produce soil amendments.

Established in 1990, the U.S. Composting Council (USCC) is the only national organization in the United States dedicated to the development, expansion and promotion of the composting industry.

The USCC achieves this mission by encouraging, supporting and performing compost related research, promoting best management practices, establishing standards, educating professionals and the public about the benefits of composting and compost utilization, enhancing compost product quality, and developing training materials for composters and markets for compost products. USCC members include compost producers, marketers, equipment manufacturers, product suppliers, academic institutions, public agencies, nonprofit groups and consulting/engineering firms.

The USCC is a non-profit 501(c) (6) organization that also directs the Composting Council Research and Education Foundation (CCREF), a 501(c) (3) charitable foundation, which administers public and private research and education activities.
