WM Director Wins Innovation Award

May 26, 2022 |


Shawn Tackitt, WM field director of recycling operations, was named the 2022 Innovator of the Year by MSW Management Magazine for his work leading the design and construction of two state-of-the-art facilities at the Davis Street Resource Recovery Complex in San Leandro.

Tackitt earned the award for overseeing the design and construction of the organics material recovery facility (OMRF) and the organics materials composting facility (OMCF). These $160 million facilities are the first of the kind in North America and can recover more than 80% of the stray organic materials, such as food scraps and food-soiled paper, mistakenly left in the trash by residents and businesses after source separation.
