Steamboat Springs has an eye on upcoming mandatory recycling, as well as improving its waste reduction, recycling and composting programs, according to the city.

With these initiatives in mind, the city announced Monday, Dec. 12, that it is hiring industry expert Alicia Archibald as the new community recycling coordinator.

In a news release, city says its new two-year contracted position will help Steamboat achieve waste reduction and recycling goals outlined in the Routt County Climate Action Plan. In particular, Archibald will be active in a few key areas: implementing the commercial recycling ordinance, providing technical assistance to the community, developing city recycling sites and supporting implementation of the Climate Action Plan.

“(Archibald) brings a wealth of waste management and recycling experience that will significantly assist the city and elevate the community toward greener practices,” said Winnie DelliQuadri, special project/intergovernmental services manager.

Archibald currently serves on the Board of Directors for Recycling Colorado and, prior to accepting the community recycling coordinator position, served as a solid waste consultant focusing on waste minimization strategies for municipalities for four years. She has held various sustainability related positions, and has training in Occupational Safety and Health Administration general industry outreach.

Archibald will start her new role on Monday, Dec. 19.
