Ulster County Resource Recovery AgencyKingston, New York
The Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency (UCRRA) is seeking a dynamic Executive Director to lead all aspects of the organization, including the administration of current programs, development of new materials management options, and financial management. Established in December 1986 and governed by a five-member Board, UCRRA has two transfer stations, a recycling facility, a composting facility, an education department, and a budget of approximately $20 million.
UCRRA is run by a staff of 38 (including the Executive Director)- 11 administrative and 38 operations employees. The five-member board is appointed by the County of Ulster legislature.
The top priority for the Executive Director is to solicit and review alternative methods of waste disposal while reviewing compatible and economical waste diversion methods, work in partnership with local municipal (county, city, town, village) leaders, understand the inner workings of the Agency and ensure the current facilities are properly maintained.
This challenge and opportunity require significant effort toward partnerships with local government and citizen stakeholders. UCRRA needs to be a leader in waste diversion while managing its current programs and properties.
Ulster County stretches over three spectacular geographical regions: the Hudson River Valley, the Catskill Mountains, and the Shawangunk Ridge. Beyond the natural beauty of its landscape, Ulster’s diverse cultural fabric weaves together accomplished artists, musicians, chefs, farmers, thespians, and entrepreneurs in a creative and innovative community. With so much to see and do, Ulster offers plenty of opportunities to restore your work-life balance.
The county houses beautiful towns, from the quaint charm of New Paltz to the industrial architecture of Saugerties, to the towering murals and Revolutionary War-era stone houses that exist side by side in the city of Kingston. Museums and cultural heritage sites capture the county’s ample history. Every place has its own distinct personality, but they are all called home by generations of professionals in tech, manufacturing, hospitality, the food and beverage industry, and so many more—who know how to enjoy life when they are not working.
Many of the best restaurants in the region can be found here as well. Farm-to-table is the rule, not the exception, and restaurateurs make it a point to use ingredients grown by their neighbors. It all pairs perfectly with locally made hand-crafted beer, wine, hard cider, or spirits.
The Executive Director of the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency is charged with protecting public health and the environment and promoting sustainable materials management practices by efficiently managing solid waste materials with a focus on resource conservation. As the chief executive officer and the face of the organization, the Executive Director will lead the organization in determining how Ulster County can attain these goals while examining issues through the environmental, legal, operational and financial lens.
