Over the course of these 30 years Steve has been involved in municipal and industrial waste water treatment, ground water monitoring, hazardous materials emergency response, municipal and industrial recycling, waste minimization programs, has operated a landfill, a materials recovery facility, and yard waste composting facilities.
