(402) 436-2384 x 1000

Julie Diegel has been the Executive Director since she managed the merger of WasteCap Nebraska and the Nebraska State Recycling Association to form the Nebraska Recycling Council in March 2017, and we wish her the best in retirement at the end of this year. Julie is interested in systems thinking, and firmly believes we can overcome limits to resource recovery in Nebraska through planning, working collaboratively, and investing in the future. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a certificate from the International Society of Sustainability Professionals, and is a certified TRUE Advisor for Zero Waste Facility Certification. Julie and her husband built and live in a straw bale house on her daughter and son-in-law’s farm.
