Mid Florida Materials would like to congratulate Francisco Zamora and Jonathan Jachowdik for completing the State of Florida’s 24 Hour Training Class for Landfill Operators. Both Francisco and Jonathan are now “Certified Landfill Operators”. The topics of the class they attended included: the basics of solid waste & landfill operations; environmental concerns with waste handling facilities; screening for prohibited materials; mapping special waste; the fundamentals of landfill construction; gas management; groundwater monitoring issues with closed landfills. Mid Florida Materials is always looking for ways to improve efficiency while maintaining our high level of compliance in our recycling efforts. By having our operators certified it allows us to move along on the path of continual improvement.
