Solid Waste and Environmental Services divisions consolidate; Mary Hamilton to supervise division

RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2016

TAVARES — Lake County’s Environmental Services and Solid Waste Divisions were consolidated in December, with manager Mary Hamilton’s role to now include supervising nearly 100 county employees.

In addition to her regular duties as Environmental Services Division Manager, Hamilton assumed a vacant supervisory role of Solid Waste Division manager in April 2015, just six months after the county launched its new 1-1-1 trash collection program. 

“Mary has proven, above and beyond, that she can juggle a multitude of difficult tasks with great efficiency,” said County Manager David Heath. “That’s precisely why we felt so confident in combining these divisions under Mary’s skilled leadership.”

Since 2011, Hamilton served as Lake County’s Environmental Services Division Manager, where she was responsible for the county’s stormwater management, water lab, mosquito and aquatic plant management and the fiscal services of the Public Works Department. From 2008 to 2011, Hamilton was the Stormwater Project Manager for Lake County.  

Previously, Hamilton worked for Orange County Public Works as a Project Manager in the Roads and Drainage Division. She has over 20 years of experience in stormwater management and water quality and holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Rollins College in Winter Park.
