Compost Caucus launched in House

American Capital Building in Washington DC .

U.S. Reps. Tim Burchett (R-Tennessee) and Julia Brownley (D-California) last month launched the bipartisan Compost Caucus in the House of Representatives.

“This is something that can bring members on both sides of the aisle together,” Burchett said. “There’s a lot of good things that can be done when it comes to composting and recycling, and launching this caucus this is a good first step to get members working on it together.”

The caucus will serve as an informal group of members dedicated to supporting efforts to advance compost utilization, compost manufacturing and organics recycling, collection and education programs that lead to composting, he said.

The caucus was launched when Burchett and Brownley wrote a letter to Reps. Bryan Steil (R-Wisconsin), chairman and Joe Morelle (D-New York), ranking member of the House Committee on Administration to register the Caucus as a Congressional Member Organization for the 118th Congress.

As of the time of publication, Burchett’s office was unable to provide the names of any other caucus members.
