US Department of Labor honors 2 Miami-Dade solid waste collection employees
Two employees with the Miami-Dade County Department of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) in Florida have been inducted into the U.S. Department of Labor’s Hall of Honor in Washington as Essential Workers of the Coronavirus Pandemic for their contributions.
The employees—Sherra Durham-Camp, assistant director of collections operations; and William Bouie, a collection truck driver—were honored for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“On behalf of Miami-Dade County, we are honored that our solid waste workers are being recognized for their excellent work and vital service to our community,” Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava says. “They represent all our county employees who worked tirelessly during the pandemic to serve our residents during such a challenging time.”
DSWM Director Mike Fernandez adds, “I’m very proud of Sherra and William, not only for this honor but for their hard work and dedication every day. I’m equally proud of all our employees and contractors, all of whom worked hard during the pandemic to ensure waste and recycling were collected and disposed of properly in Miami-Dade County.”
