Keep Pinellas Beautiful Wins Award of Excellence

Waste Pro Employee Serves as Board President

Waste Pro is excited to announce one of our very own is part of a national organization receiving an award for its environmental efforts!

Tracy Meehan, Municipal Marketing Manager of our Southwest Florida Region, is Board President of Keep Pinellas Beautiful, local affiliate of the national organization Keep America Beautiful (KPB). Last month, KPB received the Keep America Beautiful Affiliate Award of Excellence.

The award recognizes affiliates who “embody the vision, mission, and values of Keep America Beautiful.” KPB was selected because of its initiatives, programs, and projects aimed at preventing littering, improving recycling, and making communities beautiful.

Waste Pro has a history with KPB. In 2016, we were recognized as the 2015 Keep Pinellas Beautiful Recycling Partner for our work with implementing environmental protection initiatives throughout Pinellas County. Among those initiatives was donating containers to local events.

“I am immensely proud of the organization’s impact over the last year,” Tracy said. “However, when you look beyond the statistics of trash abated, gardens planted, educational outreach events and so on you see a growing sense of community. We are working hand in hand to keep Pinellas Beautiful just the way it is.”

That same year, Tracy also gained national recognition at the waste industry’s annual conference, Waste Expo, in Las Vegas. She was named one of Waste360’s 40 Under 40, a program which “honors the next generation of leaders shaping the future of the waste and recycling industry.”
