In 2017, Greenlee also became the first Environmental Programs Director for the City of Atlanta’s Department of Public Works (DPW), where she oversees solid waste administration, recycling, and internal/external environmental partnerships. In her role, she collaborates with community partners to develop programs to increase recycling, as well encourage residents to embrace the ‘Adopt-A-Spot’ and other litter reduction programs, as well as participating in city beautification projects.
