The William A. Faust Award

The William A. Faust Award was established in 1993 by the Air & Waste Management Association, Niagara Frontier Section, to recognize a member for distinguished service and outstanding contributions to our Section.

Our 2022 honoree is Mark Hans. Mark has been a member of the Section for many years and served as Chair in 2016-2017 and was recognized as the Outstanding Director in 2018.  Mark currently holds the position of Membership Director.  He manages our website, upgrades and coordinates our PayPal account, and is on the EnviRun and Seminar committees.  Through the many years of his membership with this organization, he has always been willing to pitch in whenever assistance is needed.

Mark grew up in Clarence, New York and received a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University at Buffalo in 1976, and his MBA in 1980.  He was a licensed Professional Engineer in NY.  He began working at Krehbiel Associates in 1976 and then moved on to the NYSDEC in 1979.  In 1985, he became the first fulltime Engineer for the Town of Clarence.  In 1989, he returned to the NYSDEC where he served as the Regional Solid Waste Engineer until his retirement in 2013.

Mark has been married to his high school sweetheart, Kyle, for 46 years and they still reside in Clarence, NY.  They have two successful, adult children.

Mark was recognized at our April 28, 2022 seminar.
