After 5 years as executive director of TVCR, Iris has taken on a more focused position helping Teton County Solid Waste make strides in reducing some of the most pressing waste issues and increasing waste diversion by applying for state and federal grant money to improve infrastructure, education, and outreach on waste reduction. Through an $80,000 Idaho DEQ grant, Teton County will construct a C&D waste sorting facility which is expected to recover and divert/reuse up to 70% of unsorted construction waste delivered to the Transfer Station. Working together with RAD, Teton County ID & WY, and other regional partners, Iris is excited to make a lasting impact in waste diversion policies and infrastructure.
