Shelly Reider worked for over 20 years for the City of Millbrae in the Bay Area creating, implementing, and managing a variety of environmental programs, including for waste prevention and recycling, composting, water conservation, water pollution prevention, and climate protection programs. Shelly started in the resource recovery field in the mid 1980’s by starting San Francisco State University’s recycling program as a student there, which is still running to this day. She was hired right out of college by the City and County of San Francisco implementing a variety of recycling programs. After four years there, Shelly was hired by Millbrae in response to AB 939, the first waste management law requiring cities and counties to implement waste prevention and recycling programs. Shelly and her husband moved here a little over a year ago from Pacifica.
