BREWER, MAINE- The Municipal Review Committee, Inc. is pleased to announce that Michael Carroll of Rothesay, New Brunswick, Canada has been hired as the Executive Director of the 115 Maine municipal member non-profit organization. His first day will be July 1.
 
"We are thrilled to have Mike Carroll, a recycling and solid waste industry veteran, take the helm of the MRC," said Karen Fussell MRC Board President. "Mike has a depth of understanding of the industry as well as enthusiasm for the future that will help fulfill our mission. This is an exciting time in the solid waste industry with changes in consumer packaging, public awareness of plastics in the environment and global market changes. Maine is leading the way with Fiberight technology as an innovative part of the solution, and Mike's leadership skills will help guide the organization and the Board during this transformative era."
 
Prior to joining the MRC, Carroll was the Branch Manager for Fero Waste & Recycling, Ready John & Clean Earth in Saint John, New Brunswick, where he managed and ran the day-to-day operations for the Environmental Services Group. He oversaw solid and liquid waste for residential and commercial consumers, managed 80 employees, a fleet of over 50 trucks and contract negotiations.
 
"Returning to Maine and joining the MRC as Fiberight's Coastal Resources of Maine facility ramps up to accept MSW from all MRC members is exciting," said Carroll. "I look forward to working with MRC member municipalities on the opportunities that will come from Coastal Resources, and enhancing the organization with the public, regulators and members."
 
Fussell added, "I would also like to thank our interim Executive Director, Eric Johns of Clifton, for the tremendous amount of work he did over the last few months to keep the administrative aspects of our organization running smoothly. Through the collective voice of our 115 municipal members and guidance from our new Executive Director, the MRC is well-positioned to be the leading voice of the recycling and solid waste industry."
 
Carroll's first public meeting will be the July 24 Board of Directors Meeting at Machias Savings Bank, 581 Wilson Street, Brewer. MRC members are encouraged to attend and meet with Mike; however, he will also be reaching out to all members in the near future.
 
Background

About the MRC:

The MRC, a non-profit organization, was formed by municipalities in 1991 and has played a critical role in ensuring our long-term, affordable and environmentally sound waste disposal ever since. MRC member communities have begun to send their MSW to Fiberight's Coastal Resources of Maine facility in Hampden, a next generation recycling and solid waste processing facility. Its combination of straightforward technologies will help move solid waste management and true resource recovery well into the 21st century. Online at www.mrcmaine.org .
