Belinda Li is a Project Engineer based in the Vancouver office of Tetra Tech. She works with municipalities and institutions to assess solid waste systems, facilitate evidence-based decision making, and test strategies to improve waste reduction and diversion rates. Recent projects include a cost analysis for organics collection scenarios and zero waste pilot programs for the University of Alberta, a feasibility assessment for organics processing facilities in the Okanagan-Similkameen, and a waste composition study for the institutional, commercial, and industrical (ICI) sector in Metro Vancouver. She enjoys taking apart complex problems, analyzing all the pieces, and putting them back together into a cohesive and easy-to-understand strategy for decision makers.
Belinda also volunteers as the chair of WasteAid North America, which formed in June 2015. She’s now venturing into the world of food waste reduction and the intersection of solid waste management with social justice.
