“Washington Organic Recycling Council has set the compost industry standard in Washington state by establishing what compost is and should be.  WORC provides the training that enables Washington State composters to achieve that standard.  The Council effectively seats all the industry professionals around the same table, which enables us to unify the goals between composters, regulators, consultants and end-users.  And when a situation unfolds the council, the composting community that WORC has built, jumps into action.”
