Beth MacKenzie: Waste Reducer
Beth MacKenzie joined the University of Iowa in September as the recycling coordinator in the Office of Sustainability, a branch of Facilities Management. She oversees and coordinates recycling operations across campus, including the UI’s involvement in Recyclemania, an annual competition to encourage higher-education institutions nationwide (and some in Canada) to recycle more.
MacKenzie previously served as the sustainability outreach and education coordinator for Brightside St. Louis, a nonprofit organization contracted by the city of St. Louis to plan and implement the city’s recycling education program.
