Composting Council, Keep America Beautiful Team Up on Composting

The U.S. Composting Council (USCC) and Keep America Beautiful (KAB) are partnering to further composting education.

Through the agreement, Stamford, Conn.-based KAB and Ronkonkoma, N.Y.-based USCC will share educational resources and identify opportunities to promote awareness of the role composting plays in waste reduction, improved soil structure and water quality, and reduced soil erosion, the organizations said in a news release.

“Composting organic residuals can significantly reduce landfill impacts while creating a healthier ecosystem,” said Matthew M. McKenna, KAB president and CEO.

“Teaming up with KAB to share resources and promote our complimentary messages of diverting organic materials from the waste stream and into compost will be of great benefit to local communities and the environment,” said USCC Executive Director Michael Virga.
