Fifteen in Five Fellowship for Waste Management
East Central Iowa Council of Governments
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Aims of the Fellowship
Working on developing an innovative, economical, and widely accepted waste management plan for Linn County. Three sub-committees have been organized in this effort; they represent land filling, recycling and waste-to-energy programs. By the time I began my internship with Jennifer Ryan, a member of the East Central Iowa Council of Governments, the three sub-committees had developed a general idea of what direction they wanted to move in. Therefore, it became my job to evaluate other counties and their success with similar waste management plans.
