Virginia loves compost and has demonstrated its enthusiasm by becoming the newest state to form a regional group to support the compost manufacturing industry.

The Virginia Composting Council (VCC) became an official chapter of the U.S. Composting Council in March 2015.  Chapter board members include McGill’s own Kyle White and Bob Broom.

It is the country’s fourth regional chapter, joining California, Minnesota and North Carolina.  There are also working groups in the Maryland-Delaware region and Colorado.
