Julie Diegel was named Executive Director of the Nebraska Recycling Council in January 2017. Having worked for six years at WasteCap Nebraska as Director of Sustainability Programs, and later as Executive Director for the Nebraska State Recycling Association, assuming leadership of the new NRC was an exciting prospect. Julie is interested in systems thinking, and firmly believes that we can overcome limits to resource recovery in Nebraska by planning for them, working collaboratively, and investing in the future. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a certificate from the International Society of Sustainability Professionals. Julie and her husband live in a straw bale house on her family’s farm within walking distance of her three dear granddaughters.
