In this position,self motivation and dependability are a must.
A typical day at work requires a positive attitude, as I am dealing with people all day. I am assigned a geographical area for a given period of time, where I travel from business to business reaching out to business owners as well as property owners regarding the issues surrounding textile waste in our landfills. My end goal is to place textile recycling bins.
I am on my own from 8 a.m to 5 p.m, when I call my supervisor to check in for the day. Weekly meetings are held on Fridays at our main offices, where we discuss the progress of our week and plan the next one.
The hardest part of this job is driving around all day.
The best part of my job is reaching out and informing people about environmental issues that need attention and that I deeply care about on a personal level. Whether or not I place a recycling bin, I am providing knowlege that some indivduals may not have.
