Description

N.J.A.C. 7:26A - 1.4(a)(14)(xiv) states that all operators of composting facilities in New Jersey must "attend a composting course.....approved by the Department." The NJAES Office of Continuing Professional Education, in conjunction with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection and in cooperation with the Association of New Jersey Recyclers, has developed a course which meets the requirements of the regulations and will help you to improve your facility's operation.

Specific topics to be covered include:

  • NJDEP regulatory requirements;
  • The scientific principles of composting, or "Why Compost Happens;" and
  • How to avoid the "Murphy's Law" of composting and what to do when the law strikes (health and odor issues).

A Certificate of Completion will be provided to each fully paid participant who successfully completes the course.  If you are a New Jersey Certified Recycling Professional, this class will give you six (6) recertification credits.
