We were saddened to learn of the passing of Jon Harris, a long-time Ridge Meadows Recycling Society Board Member.
Jon had always been involved in his community. He lived in Maple Ridge all his life and served on the Maple Ridge Council for 12 years.
He volunteered for the Fire Department, Parks & Leisure, and Scouts Canada. Jon joined the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society after retiring as a way to stay involved in his community.
We will miss him and are thinking of his loved ones at this time.
Jon’s story was profiled in a 2007 BC Notaries publication:
“I think the biggest challenge for our Society is the extremely complicated nature of recycling. It continues to change at a rapid pace as new technology and processes are developed and societal attitudes towards waste reduction shift.
Ridge Meadows Recycling’s biggest strength is its flexibility, the ability to be adaptable and move with the changing times. Part of this ease is due to the strong principles the society is founded on, which guide the Board of Directors when faced with difficult decisions.”
