Employee Profile – Ross Littlejohn
Ross Littlejohn is an Environmental Technician and a valuable member of AET’s team. He works primarily on municipal and private sector solid waste projects. His day-to-day involvement on various projects covers a wide variety of activities such as planning and preparation, field work and primary data collection, data analysis, and reporting. Although he has been spending a lot more time over the last few months working from home, he is no stranger to being on the road undertaking field work across Canada. In fact, during one particularly busy period earlier this year, Ross visited five provinces within two months. Many of AET’s municipal work is in support of their waste, recycling and organics collection programs. Continued operation, monitoring and administering of these programs is an essential service for residents.
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, all non-essential staff are working from home, but not all jobs can be done at home. Ross, along with his co-workers at AET, are taking extra precautions in the field to ensure, not only their safety, but the safety of the people around them. This includes increased use of PPE and practicing physical distancing measures.
Ross is always ready and willing to step up when called upon. He has a positive attitude and has been recognized many times by his peers as going above and beyond expectations, and being a real team player.
Being a part of AET allows me to explore far and unique places in Canada. While providing a service to assist management of waste programs, I enjoy soaking in the culture of the large cities and small communities.
