What We Do

Compost Operations Training Course (COTC) 
COTC provides up to date training on industry practices, as well as hands on training and the chance to tour local composting facilities to see how it all fits together. The most recent Colorado training took place in May 2024 in Grand Junction and was a huge success. The team is hoping to continue to offer this to those interested in our region.
