“Rethink + Prevent + Inspire!” Master Composter/Recycler classes are held at two North Olympic Library System branches on Saturday, March 7.

The Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., hosts a class from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., hosts a class from 3-7 p.m.

Learn about critical waste prevention activities with local solutions working with local haulers, governments and organizations to create best practices and educate community members.

Presented by waste prevention specialist Megan Juran, these workshops are free to all Clallam County residents, but registration is required.

Topics include:

• Introduction to the history and systems of waste and recycling

• Thoughtful consumerism

• Composting and food waste prevention

• Recycling right: Clean, Empty, Dry!
