What Is Target Organics?
The USCC Target Organics Project aims to assemble resources that can be used to advance compost infrastructure and compost use in local communities across the United States. The resources are developed from stakeholders across the US Composting Council's communities and committees. These resources will include updated state model rules for compost permitting, local zoning templates, economic studies and educational campaigns to expand the accessibility to organics collection, composting facilities and use of compost across the United States.

target organics projects & HUB
The Target Organics Hub is a collection of resources to be launched in 2021 made up of:
*USCC Directed/Completed projects: *The Target Organics Committee, USCC Staff and Committees and Board of Directors assembled a collection of projects (some already underway) to address these challenges during the coming three- to five-year time span. 2020 is Year One of the Project Deliverables, click here to see what is underway
*Partner Collaborations: Much work has been done by governments, non-profit organizations and others in many challenge areas of organics collection and composting. The Target Organics Committees are actively searching for these resources and will spend 2020 and 2021 collaborating with their producers to bring them all under one umbrella, or “Hub”. If you are a partner or know of one with a resource to share, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CCLC & CCREF
While some of the work is being completed through the USCC Operating Budget, accomplishing these projects is a huge achievement requiring funding and assistance. To make this happen the USCC has relied upon the Composting Council Research
and Education Foundation and the Corporate Composting Leadership Council for assistance.
