  • Good evening. My name is Jamie Dean and I am the Solid Waste Coordinator for the County of Monroe. I would like to thank you for granting me this opportunity to present. Through the media today we hear things such as reduce, reuse, recycle, protect the environment and think green nearly every day. It is hard to imagine that it wasn’t all that long ago when there were places like this in Monroe County.
