Tom Houska, Senior District Manager for the Delmarva Peninsula at Waste Management, Inc, takes a moment to reflect on NERC and recycling.
Here's what Tom has to say:
When did you first become involved with NERC and how long were you actively involved?
I became involved with NERC in the early 1990's. I was actively involved for about 15 years (+/-).
How did you first get involved with NERC?
I was working for the Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) – the agency representing the State of Delaware on NERC. My boss, N.C. Vasuki, appointed me to the Committee.
What were you "doing" then, and what you're doing now?
At DSWA I had several roles throughout my 16 year tenure. When I retired from the DSWA five years ago I was the Chief of Administration. I was responsible for financial forecasting, regulations and compliance, strategic planning, recycling operations, political liaison, marketing and public information. When I left DSWA I took a position with Waste Management, Inc. - Senior District Manager for the Delmarva Peninsula. I am still in that position today.
