The Nebraska Composting Chapter
The Nebraska Composting Chapter was founded in February 2019 as a program of the Nebraska Recycling Council, and an official state chapter and affiliate organization of the US Composting Council. As a USCC state affiliate, the NECC is dedicated to the development, expansion, and promotion of the composting industry in Nebraska using science, principles of sustainability, and economic viability. The NECC achieves that mission by:
encouraging and guiding research
promoting best composting practices
educating professionals and the public
enhancing product quality and markets
Nebraska Compost Committee
The Nebraska Compost Committee is an active committee of NECC members, compost operators, stakeholders, and NRC staff. The Committee takes a leadership role in advocating for best practices in the composting industry, fair and reasonable regulations, and widespread awareness of compost’s value in creating healthy soils, conserving water, and supporting local economies in our agriculture-based State. For more information about joining NECC’s Compost Committee, contact Megan Jackson.
