ICAW is a multi-media publicity and education event that showcases composting and compost products. It features everything from composting in your backyard to large-scale commercial composting facilities and businesses serving entire communities.

This year’s theme is:

Compost–the Soil and Water Connection

As the US voice of the composting industry, USCC has signed onto the International Year of Soil, a project of the Global Soil Partnership and the Food and Agriculture Office of the United Nations.

Our US Theme will center on the need for compost as a component of healthy soil here in our country, in infrastructure development, agriculture and food production – compost’s role in everything from mitigation of brownfields, stormwater management and erosion control, and water conservation.
