Recycle Right at Work: Organizing a Green Team

Sheila Davis joined SWACO’s Innovation and Programs Team in July of 2021 with the task to help SWACO meet its 75% diversion goal by 2032.  She helps businesses implement recycling programs, reach zero waste and zero landfill initiatives, and supports businesses on their quest to build sustainable recycling programs.

She has a degree in Sport Management from BGSU, a long history of working in manufacturing, printing, and IT as a business development manager, and gained a solid understanding of the waste industry when she spent 5 years at Kimble Companies.  This background allows her to bring a variety of knowledge and expertise to SWACO and to relate with business leaders who want to implement recycling programs that work.

Sheila relocated to Columbus from NE Ohio in 2020 and has 3 rescue dogs. She has a daughter who lives in the Netherlands and a daughter who is an ER nurse at Grant Medical Center. She is a volunteer Girl Scout, an avid upcycler, a savvy thrift shopper, and an amazing paper crafter. If you have questions about travel and how to do it efficiently, she can help there too having visited 40 places in 3 years for one of her employment positions.
