Brewster’s Meg Morris Receives Recycling “Lifetime Achievement” Award

Meg Morris, Chair of Brewster’s Recycling Commission, received a “Lifetime Achievement” award at MassRecycle’s annual meeting in October 2020. Each year MassRecycle recognizes individuals whose efforts have improved recycling, reuse, or waste reduction in Massachusetts.

Meg Morris has served on Brewster’s Recycling Commission nearly 10 years and is the co-founder and president of the Cape Cod Anti-Litter Coalition. Morris is an advisor to the Ocean Voyages Institute, a group that works to clear litter and debris from the oceans, and founded the Community Warehouse, a large New York retail reuse center. She spearheaded the implementation of the “Go Green Initiative” introducing recycling and environmental education into New York schools.

In 2016 Morris was honored by the National Recycling Coalition for her longtime efforts to improve solid waste management. She worked for over 25 years in sustainable materials management including as Vice President of Covanta’s Materials Management and Community Affairs unit and as Covanta’s Director of Environmental Science.

MassRecycle is a not-for-profit organization that works to reduce, reuse, and recycle more materials in Massachusetts.
