Laura Reynolds with SportsRadio 610 talks to City of Houston Public Works and Engineering Planning and Development of Code Enforcement Program Director of Green Building Resource Center Steve Stelzer. Composting reduces the vegetable waste in our landfills by 25%. It also acts as a natural fertilizer reducing our need for chemicals to control weeds and pests thus keeping chemicals from potentially leaking into our ground water. Steve tells us how we can become a Master Composter through the City’s Green Building Resource Center’s STAR Yard Wise Master Composter Certificate Program, May 14 through May 17. The class offers an in-depth compost education featuring a team of experienced Houston professionals. The City’s Green Building Resource Center, part of the Public Works and Engineering Department, will be offering this course at the Houston Permitting Center, 1002 Washington Ave.
