CAPCOG recognizes Mallia for volunteer service

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

CAPCOG honored Melinda Mallia, Travis County Natural Resources Division Director, with its second annual volunteer service award.

“Mallia’s commitment to the proper planning, management, and disposal of solid waste and household hazardous waste in the CAPCOG region can’t be eclipsed,” said Ken May, CAPCOG regional services director.

Mallia served on the CAPCOG Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC), from 1996 to mid-2015 — the longest serving local government staff member of any CAPCOG committee. Mallia was instrumental in the development of the Regional Solid Waste Grant Program, the Regional Solid Waste Management Plan and its priorities, the landfill conformance review process, the closed landfill inventory process, and the private industry dispute and resolution process. During her service on SWAC, she contributed to selecting more than 300 projects, which received $11.3 million in regional solid waste funding.
