Scale Supervisor Recycling and Waste Centre

Recycling and Waste Supervisor

If you are an experienced, energetic and customer-focused professional, interested in joining a dynamic family-owned entrepreneurial organization where you can make a difference, then look no further! We are looking for an individual who shares our passion for the green economy and who strives for excellence in customer service and leading employees in operations.

Emterra operates four of the larger Metro Vancouver Recycling and Waste Centres that are located throughout the Lower Mainland.  These facilities receive large volumes of waste that are consolidated and shipped to various destinations in western North America. In addition, each facility contains comprehensive recycling depots that divert materials away from disposal and into the green economy.

The Recycling and Waste Centres are open 363 days per year. Applicants must be willing and able to work four-day rotating shifts (i.e. four days working and four days off).

We are looking for a scale supervisor to improve the scale operations. You will be closely working with Metro Vancouver scale management to take corrective actions when necessary, implement new procedures, standardize the existing procedures across the four facilities, train the new operators, and answer any inquiries they might have. Currently, there are 16 scale operators.

The scale supervisor is a great role if you are an organized person who pays attention to details and is comfortable with cash transactions, scale closing, and opening procedures.

The scale supervisor must be flexible to work with various teams in 4 sites and have the skills to manage communications and solve problems.

This role is a great opportunity to extend your waste management experience, and it is the right career path to apply for a management role if you demonstrate outstanding performance with a sense of leadership.

The company will provide extensive training and orientation to support the scale supervisor in performing his/her daily tasks.
