Resource Recovery Worker II

I operate a Caterpillar at the Resource Recovery landfill. We are currently digging a new cell for a second landfill that must meet very particular state regulations.

I enjoy my work, although winter rain, wind and mud make this challenging.

Yet challenges are good for me. I recently completed a big one in my personal life: I changed my eating habits and in one year I lost 80 pounds!

You can say that I am a happy and positive person, very grateful for my 11 years with Public Works—even on that wet winter day when I slid halfway down the hill!
