Wasatch Resource Recovery’s Olsen Bowerman Finds Hope in Waste
Wasatch Resource Recovery will be the first food waste anaerobic digester in Utah. The project, based in North Salt Lake, expects to be fully operational in fall 2018, and Morgan Olsen Bowerman, sustainability and resource recovery manager at Wasatch Resource Recovery, can’t wait.
Olsen Bowerman oversees the sourcing of food waste from restaurants, grocery stores, food manufacturers, distribution centers and other companies to encourage them to partner with Wasatch Resource Recovery to divert their food waste from landfill. She feels excited to be part of this pioneering, statewide initiative.
She also does community outreach about how to manage food waste, and she is president of the Utah Recycling Alliance.
Olsen Bowerman, who is a 2018 Waste360 40 Under 40 award recipient, spoke to Waste360 about her passion for recycling, including the project she initiated and managed in Uganda and her work with Wasatch Resource Recovery.
