We Welcome Hallie to The Team!

We are very excited to welcome Hallie Clemm, most recently the Solid Waste Management Deputy Administrator for the DC Department of Public Works, as the new COO for Tenleytown Trash. She will officially take on the position starting in January 2016. With more than 25 years of experience as an analyst, program manager and change agent working for the DC government and the Maryland Department of the Environment, she will be a welcome member of the Tenleytown Trash team.

Barney Shapiro, founder and "Head Honcho," has been acting COO since the company's start in 1997. Clemm will replace him as COO and Shapiro will maintain his position as CEO, stepping back from operations and focusing more on the overall business as a whole.

Clemm's hire gives Tenleytown Trash a strong female presence, something that is unfortunately particularly rare in the waste management business. She joins Adrienne Edmands, Business Manager, in the Tenleytown Trash offices where she will help run day-to-day operations.
