Anne Ruzicka


Anne’s introduction to waste diversion came when she worked for Edmonton Catholic Schools as their Environmental Coordinator, managing numerous recycling programs throughout their over 100 sites. She also worked on a waste diversion pilot project between the School Board, Alberta Environment and the Recycling Council of Alberta during the demolition and construction of a new inner city school. Anne eventually moved to Canmore to work for the Bow Valley Waste Management Commission as their Regional Education Coordinator, designing and setting up a new website. After a few years she decided she was too far from family and accepted a position as Outreach Coordinator with the Recycling Council of Alberta, moving to the Red Deer area. In this role, one of her duties was the administrator of National Waste Reduction Week, coordinating the program across Canada. She was also involved in the redesign of the NWRW website. When not at trade shows promoting recycling and waste diversion, she was coordinating the RCA’s summer ambassador program. For a short time, Anne enhanced her skills working in the Accounting Department of Alberta Health Services. Feeling the pull back to the waste and recycling industry, Anne accepted a position with Beaver Municipal Solutions in Ryley, which operates the largest landfill in Alberta. After spending two years in Operations, she was promoted to Communications Coordinator where her primary role is stakeholder relations.
