A City of Kamloops staffer has been recognized for environmental work in the public sector.

Waste analyst Marcia Dick, who is known for promoting waste reduction, recently received an environmental award in the public sector category from the Recycling Council of British Columbia.

The award was announced at the Recycling Council of B.C.’s annual conference, which was held online earlier this month.

The council’s goal is to facilitate ideas enabling efficient solutions to waste elimination. Dick is currently working on a pilot program for curbside organics collection in Kamloops, which is expected to roll out this fall, with the goal of citywide implementation.
