|The Washington Organic Recycling Council (WORC)|
The Washington Organic Recycling Council (WORC) is a nonprofit corporation formed in response to demands for increased recycling of organic materials.
The Washington Organic Recycling Council provides a unified statewide voice on many issues: research, education (through WORC sponsored Operator Training & Certification Programs), product safety and standards, government regulations, environmental planning, trade, marketing, and public education and involvement.
Since 1991, WORC has been recognized as the statewide organization representing organic recyclers, and facilitates communication between the private and public sectors. The Council works closely with state and regional organizations, such as the Washington State Recycling Association, the Clean Washington Center, and the Northwest Biosolids Management Association, to promote and encourage recycling of organic materials. Nationally, WORC coordinates with other state composting organizations and the US Composting Council.
