Industry Sends Recycling Philosopher into Retirement
From the August 14, 2023 article:
During his decades in the recycling industry, Michael Timpane has made a huge impact on a number of companies and local recycling programs. But perhaps more important is the way he has uplifted and inspired the people around him.
Timpane, who speaks today on a markets panel at the Resource Recycling Conference in Orlando, is retiring from full-time work at the end of this year. And this morning’s session will be his final presentation at a national conference.
To mark the occasion, Resource Recycling received comments from a number of sector professionals who have worked closely with Timpane during his career – a stretch that started in the 1970s at Reynolds Aluminum Company and included tenures at BFI, Waste Management (now WM) and, most recently, the consultancy RRS.
