Madison County, New York  Elects New Solid Waste Deputy Director

SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): The Madison County Board of Supervisors recently announced the appointment of Amy Miller as Deputy Director of the County’s Department of Solid Waste and Sanitation.

Miller is a long-time resident of the Town of Lincoln, where the Madison County Landfill is located. She will be responsible for supervising and coordinating engineering operations as well as overseeing other projects at the Landfill from start to finish. In 2016, she received the New York State Association for Solid Waste Management’s Landfill Operator Certification.

She leaves the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency where she worked as an environmental engineer for the past nine years. Miller oversaw the operation of the waste-to-energy facility and performed environmental compliance and permitting work for OCRRA’s transfer stations. She also wrote the update for OCRRA’s Solid Waste Management Plan.

Miller said she is excited to be able to work within the community where she lives and plans to become more active in local organizations. She is a member of the New York State Association for Solid Waste Management and received the 2015 Unsung Hero Award from the Solid Waste Association of North America.

“The Madison County Landfill is very innovative with its gas-to-energy facility, solar panel array, and waste heat recovery system,” said Miller. “I’m excited to join Madison County’s highly regarded and recognized solid waste management system.”

Miller is looking forward to expanding her industry knowledge through direct involvement in the daily landfill operations. One of the things Miller especially enjoyed about working at OCRRA was that it was a small organization which allowed her to get involved in many different facets of the solid waste and recycling operations.

“I liked that no two days were the same and I was constantly solving new problems,” said Miller. “I see the same type of opportunity at Madison County.”
