  • While Lori Somers has worn a number of hats during her career at Waste Management, the one constant has been her commitment to Waste Management, where she has worked for 26 years.

In 1996, Lori became recycling manager for Waste Management of North County and Coast Waste Management. In this role, she supervised the operations of the recycling centers in Oceanside, Carlsbad and Del Mar, and provided recycling outreach and educational services to the local cities served by the company. She transitioned from her position as recycling manager to community and municipal relations representative for the company's operations in Oceanside, Carlsbad, Del Mar, and Solana Beach in 2006.

Outside of work, Lori has been involved since 1998 with Soroptimist International of Oceanside-Carlsbad.  In 2006, she was honored as Soroptimist of the Year by her club for her leadership and service to the organization and community, and served as the organization’s President from 2006 – 2007.  When not at work or serving her community, Lori enjoys traveling, skiing and the San Diego Chargers. She lives in Oceanside.
