Regional Organics Clearinghouse

The NERC Board has voted to initiate a Regional Organics Clearinghouse. It will be an eight-state organization: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Three states in the NERC region are not included in this launch as they either already have a USCC Chapter or strong state-based organics organizations. The goal of the Clearinghouse will be to support and expand commercial composting and organics management capacity in the Northeast.

NERC’s role will be to help in the formation of the Clearinghouse, including identifying individuals to form a Board of Directors, assisting in the development of legal documents, and providing general staffing support to the Clearinghouse formation in the stages leading to membership solicitation.
