Sue Hunt
Sue Hunt, logistics management specialist at the CMG Redwood City Marine Facility, oversees award-winning reuse and recycling programs at the USGS Menlo Park campus.
The USGS Menlo Park Supply Exchange and Reuse/Recycling Programs, run by Sue Hunt, have won a Closing the Circle Award from the White House Task Force on Recycling, which is affiliated with the Office of the Federal Environmental Executive (OFEE). Sue will receive the award on June 12th in Washington, D.C.

The Closing the Circle annual awards program was established by the Clinton administration in 1995, as part of Executive Order 12856, and extended under Executive Order 13101, "Greening the Government Through Waste Prevention, Recycling, and Federal Acquisition." A panel of 18 judges representing academia, industry, and government organizations chose this year's winners, which are listed on the OFEE Web site. (Click on "What's New" and then go to "Environmental Accomplishments to be Honored by the White House." The USGS award is number 28 in the list.)

Sue will attend the awards ceremony at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. She has been asked by the DOI Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance to spend an additional day in D.C., advising them on how to set up a reuse program in conjunction with temporary office relocations during modernization of the Main Interior Building.
