Roberts Earns Lifetime Achievement Award

Rickie L. Roberts, P.E., GREDELL Engineering Resources, Inc., received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Forty-Sixth Annual Missouri Waste Control Coalition (MWCC) Environmental Conference. This award is presented to an individual who has made a meaningful contribution to the Coalition, the environmental industry, a community, a government agency, or state of Missouri, during their career.

Rick began his professional career 45 years ago, starting with the Missouri Department of Health in the mid-1970’s. He then moved to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources after it began in 1975. Rick was a leader in a small group of engineers in Jefferson City who started the Solid Waste Management Program in the 1970’s, which quickly evolved to include Hazardous Waste. He moved to the Poplar Bluff Regional Office of MDNR by 1980 and continued working in Solid Waste and Hazardous Waste until he left MDNR in the mid-1990’s and moved to Kansas City to work with Burns and McDonnell in their Solid Waste group. From there, he went to work in St. Louis for Tetra Tech before joining GREDELL Engineering Resources in 2002, where he led the St. Louis and, now, Springfield offices.

Rick has been involved with the MWCC since the 1970’s, having served as the 18th President from 1998-1999. Throughout his career as a government employee/regulator and a private consulting engineer, Rick’s dedication to the MWCC has never wavered. He has had a 90% or more attendance rate to the conferences over the last 40 years. Rick now periodically volunteers as a moderator, or presents a timely topic of discussion.

Very few, if any, active solid waste professionals can stack up against his overall experience in solid waste AND hazardous waste, as well as his past and continued service to the Missouri Waste Control Coalition and the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA).
