The Dunn County Solid Waste Division is excited to welcome aboard Mee Yang as a hybrid Recycling and Support Specialist rounding out an award winning team servicing the county’s environmental waste and recycling needs.
Yang will be promoting recycling education, expanding recycling programming, and implementing waste reduction initiatives. Recycling is good for the environment as well as for the economy.
Yang is from the hometown of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin located in Central Wisconsin which is known for its paper and cranberry industry. She is a Veteran having served in the United States Air Force as a Command Post Controller. After Yang’s service to her country and staying true to her Wisconsin roots, she came back to complete her undergraduate degree from neighboring Eau Claire County at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. She is also a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a Master’s of Science in Nonprofit Management.
A passion of hers is community involvement and she has participated in numerous environmental and recycling impact efforts such as river clean ups. She volunteers her time to mentor, as well as guest speak, with first generation high school and university students encouraging them to pursue higher education. She is excited to meet and be of service to the residents and businesses of Dunn County so be sure to say, “Hello” if you see her out and about the county.
Aside from recycling pursuits, Yang’s other current life mission is to find the best tasting cupcake in the nation.
