CARIBOU — There are 10 seats available for the annual Composting Class offered through NMDC in conjunction with Earth Day, and participants will receive a free Earth Machine compost bin.

Officials with the Northern Maine Development Commission and the Northern Maine Solid Waste Management Committee are teaming up to offer the free class on Wednesday, April 18.

“Earth Day is an occasion to remember our responsibility to the environment and to celebrate the natural wonders of the planet,” NMDC Environmental Planner Connie Akerson said.

Pre-registration for the class is required, as space is limited. The class will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at NMDC’s office, located at 11 West Presque Isle Road in Caribou. To register or for additional information, contact Akerson at 498-8736 or 1-800-427-8736.
