Hamilton County Public Health Waste Management Director Captures Award for Program Leadership
October 12, 2018
Chuck DeJonckheere, Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH) Director of Waste Management was named the Ohio Environmental Health Association “Outstanding Sanitarian of the Year – Southwest District.”
DeJonckheere, a resident of Montgomery, was cited for management of the Solid Waste Program at HCPH. In his nomination, he was recognized for oversight of several solid waste and construction, demolition and debris facilities within the County. One of his responsibilities is managing the public health aspects for disposal of waste at the Rumpke Sanitary Landfill, one of the largest such facilities in the Country.
He chairs the Association’s Solid Waste Technical Subcommittee and has played an integral role in regulation for solid waste disposal throughout Hamilton County. DeJonckheere’s work has helped bridge the regulatory environment between health, environmental and the regulated community.
“We are particularly proud of our Waste Management program, and Chuck is a big reason for that,” says Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram. “He has worked diligently to navigate a complicated regulatory environment, never losing sight for concerns of the customers and citizens we serve.”
Hamilton County Public Health works to assure the 480,000 citizens living outside the cities of Cincinnati, Norwood and Springdale are safe from disease, injury and contamination.
