Feb 5th Webinar: Model Composting Regulations in the United States

SLPS Webinar
Wednesday, February 5th
Noon-1pm
Join the webinar to learn about compost facility permitting in the United States and the top issues with composting permitting and how states are progressing forward. The presentation will also include the United States Composting Council (USCC) Model Rules Template and information on the USCC’s Seal of Testing Assurance Program. Most important, how it all applies to Nebraska! Get a sneak peek of the Compost Operations Training Course coming to Nebraska in August of 2020 by the USCC Nebraska Chapter.

Composting is a business, and is regulated by both State and Local (county, township, city) officials for many impacts, including environmental impact (leachate, air emissions); neighbor issues (odor, traffic) and operational issues (safety, end product).
