Resource Recovery & Waste Management Deputy Director

My name is Mark Schleich, and I am the Deputy Director of the Resource Recovery and Waste Management Division within the Public Works Department. The Resource Recovery and Waste Management Division is responsible for the cost-effective management of solid waste and utilities in the County. It's our mission to protect the public health and environment of our community by efficiently managing waste products and utilities with a focus on resource conservation. The Division's comprehensive program for the management of solid waste includes the collection, recycling, and disposal of solid waste, and also the abatement of illegal dumping of waste.

The Division is staffed with approximately 110 full-time employees. There are four sections within the Division, each responsible for performing a unique series of functions. The Naomi Schwartz building houses the Collection and Materials Management and Engineering sections of the Resource Recovery and Waste Management Division.
