The Association of Compost Producers (ACP) is a non-profit, 501(c)6, trade association of public and private organizations dedicated to increasing the quality, value and amount of compost being produced and used in California. We do this by promoting activities and regulations that build healthy soil, benefiting people and the environment.
ACP members work and invest together to increase compost markets and improve compost product and manufacturing standards. The association provides education and communication on compost benefits and proper use through support of scientific research, and legislation, aligned with developing and expanding quality compost markets.
We always prefer to have your presence in person at our meetings, but, as always we will also have a speaker phone available to call-in during the meeting for those who can't travel. Simply call into the main switchboard number above, and ask to be put into the 2409, ACP Meeting Conference call.
