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 in local government and citizen stakeholders. UCRRA needs to be a leader in waste diversion while managing its current programs and properties.
