USCC chapters and committees are resources for networking, training and education, developing professional opportunities and advocacy. Chapter and Committee members work on localized, critical topics that impact your bottom line and align themselves closely with compost producers, municipal officers, consultants, educators and haulers. Interacting within this multi-faceted environment, members are able to share information and learn from each other’s experiences.
