Vacancies on County Recycling Board
Submitted By Jeff Becerra
The Alameda County Source Reduction and Recycling Board has two vacancies, one as "an Environmental Educator employed as such on a full-time basis" and another as "a representative of the recyclable materials processing industry." The appointees must live in Alameda County. Appointment terms are two years and Board Members are eligible for re-appointment to one additional two-year term.
The Recycling Board administers the voter-approved Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative, which levies an $8.23 per ton landfill disposal fee that generates approximately $8M per year for waste reduction and recycling programs in Alameda County. Fifty percent of the money is returned to local jurisdictions on a per-capita basis. The balance is appropriated by the Board for county-wide source reduction and recycling programs, public education, recycled product procurement, market development and grants to community organizations.
To be considered for appointment to the Recycling Board as "an Environmental Educator employed as such on a full-time basis" or "a representative of the recyclable materials processing industry," please submit a resume and cover letter stating qualifications to: Kevin Jenkins, 1221 Oak Street, Suite 536, Oakland, CA 94612, faxed to (510) 271-5151 or emailed to Kevin.Jenkins@acgov.org with the subject line "Recycling Board Vacancy."
The deadline for application is June 14, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. Minority and female candidates are urged to apply. Questions regarding the application process may be addressed to Kevin Jenkins at (510) 268-5376.
