Some of the other elements of this course include hands-on bin building, a tour of Irving’s Hunter Ferrell Landfill and studying the biology of composting under the microscope at North Lake College.

Students are expected to provide 40 hours of volunteer time back to the community over a 12-month period to help further environmental education.
