What is the Consumer Compost Use Program?
The Consumer Compost Use Program takes the USCC’s STA Certified Compost Program to the next level, and creates an easy-to-apply format.

Each compost use classification is represented by easily interpreted icons that reflect the compost’s use (or uses). Only compost producers in the STA Certified Compost program can use these symbols, as they are tied to the required compost testing. You will find these icons on participating STA Certified Compost manufacturers’ literature, websites and packaging, and as rack cards with more information about them in garden centers and nurseries.
