Marcia Papin

Solid Waste Manager, Greenville County, SC

After serving in the US Army, Marcia Papin attended college at nights and weekends to gain a degree in Building Construction Technology, then began working as an equipment operator at the Greenville County Landfill. She was promoted to landfill supervisor and in 1995 to Greenville County Solid Waste Director (now the County Solid Waste Manager). During much of that time, she also represented the South Carolina Palmetto Chapter on SWANA’s International Board and various national committees, including serving for several years as the Region 5 Director on the Executive Committee.

Ms. Papin was nominated by South Carolina Palmetto Chapter President Philip Westmoreland. The many letters of support submitted by her co-workers, industry colleagues, other chapter members and SWANA members nationally spoke volumes about professionalism, dedication to the industry, commitment to her people and to customer service.
