Bresee Joins MSW Consultants | Phil_Bresee

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Orlando, FL – OCT. 23, 2018 – MSW Consultants, LLC announced today the hire of Phil Bresee as a Senior Consultant. Mr. Bresee joined the MSW team in November 2018 and brings more than 25 years of industry experience managing public sector programs and serving in leadership positions in statewide recycling organizations.

"We're very excited to have someone with Phil's experience and standing join our team. He has developed and led some very high-profile programs, particularly during his time with the City of Philadelphia and in Broward County, Florida," said Company president Walt Davenport. "Phil's has been successful everywhere he's been. His considerable solid waste planning experience and reputation as one of the thought leaders in our industry will be real assets as we expand services to our client base," MSW vice president John Culbertson added.

Bresee comes to MSW from the Washington, DC suburb of Arlington, Virginia where he has managed collection and processing programs and contracts, public outreach and education programs, the County's mandatory commercial and multi-family recycling system, and solid waste planning efforts since early 2016. Arlington County has committed to achieving zero waste by 2038, becoming the first Virginia jurisdiction to do so.

From 2012 into 2016 Bresee was the Recycling Program Director for the City of Philadelphia, one of the largest recycling and solid waste programs in the U.S. Here he helped guide solid waste planning and stakeholder engagement efforts, directed outreach and engagement strategies, and managed contracts and grants. Phil helped negotiate and manage one of the largest MRF contracts in the U.S. (125,000 tons) during the outset of China's Operation Green Fence and was instrumental in developing programmatic measures to monitor and improve on materials residue and contamination.

From January 2004 until June 2012, Phil was the recycling program manager in Broward County, Florida where he led a comprehensive suite of programs and initiatives on behalf of the county and its resource recovery system, which included 26 cities and the Broward County School Board. Some of Phil's accomplishments and projects in Broward County included a $20 million residential grants program that eventually brought single-stream recycling and carts-based collections to more than 300,000 households and an innovative project that examined the feasibility of using processed glass with sand for beach renourishment and erosion control projects.

Phil started his career with his home of Frederick County, Maryland before moving to Howard County, Maryland where he served as the recycling division chief until late 2003. Mr. Bresee also has a long history with State Recycling Organizations, serving on the boards of the Maryland Recyclers Coalition (MRC, now the Maryland Recycling Network), Recycle Florida Today (RFT), and the Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania (PROP). He served as MRC's president in 2003 and served as the chair of RFT from 2007 until 2009. He is also a member of the National Recycling Coalition, and SWANA. Bresee has a B.S. in Political Science and performed graduate-level work in business and public administration.
