Waste360 has announced the winners of its fourth annual 40 Under 40 awards, which recognizes inspiring and innovative professionals under the age of 40 whose work in waste, recycling and organics has made a significant contribution to the industry.
This year’s winners are involved in every part of the waste and recycling industry, including haulers, municipalities, composters, recycling professionals, policymakers and product suppliers.
New to the 40 Under 40 awards this year is the Waste360 Innovator Award, which was created to recognize innovators and forward thinkers who often use technology to better the industry. This award was given to Dr. Matanya Benasher Horowitz, chief executive officer of AMP Robotics Corporation, who has used technology to help haulers, landfill operators and materials recovery facility operators reach their diversion and recovery goals.
In the coming weeks and months, Waste360 will publish a series of in-depth Q&As highlighting the winners’ lives and careers.
