Compost ambassadors are being recruited by a Midland council to promote the benefits of the muck heap.
Worcestershire County Council hopes the master composters will convince their local communities that where there's muck there's brass in a bid to cut waste and boost recycling.
The local authority's waste minimisation team has put out an appeal for residents who know their compost to sign up.
The volunteers will be provided with full training in home composting and related environmental issues. The training will also include a visit to Ryton Organic Gardens near Coventry and a waste management facility.
Nicola Blight, project development officer for Worcestershire Council, said: "Becoming a master composter is a great way to meet new people, learn valuable skills and be part of a team that makes a difference. We are initially seeking 20 people, with an opportunity for a further 20 later in the year.
"All we are asking for is people's spare time to attend events and their enthusiasm for home composting.
"People's expenses will be paid, transport provided and all support material will be supplied."
