Waste Pro’s Dayna Miller, Director of Government Affairs in the Northeast Florida Region, has been honored by the Gainesville Elks Lodge with its Distinguished Citizenship Award.
The award is presented to community members who contribute to improving the local community through leadership, service, and being an all-around good citizen. Dayna earned the award for her “outstanding and meritorious service to humanity.”
Dayna, who is also a Commissioner for the City of Alachua, is very involved in the Gainesville-Alachua community. Earlier this year, The Alachua Business League named her a recipient of the Rosanne Morse ABLe Award.
In addition, Dayna is involved with the Alachua Lions Club and Keep Alachua County Beautiful, for which she currently serves as President and Vice President, respectively. She was named Lion of the Year by the Alachua Lions Club in 2020. She is also a current board member of Recycle Florida Today.
Dayna is also a member of the Kiwanis of Santa Fe and Lake City, the Gainesville Elks Lodge, the Florida State Elks Harry-Anna Trust Fund, the Gainesville Rotary, and various Chambers of Commerce across North Florida.
In 2012, Dayna spearheaded the creation of Waste Pro’s company-wide community watch program, Waste Pro-Tection, which allows Waste Pro drivers to alert first responders if they see suspicious activity or encounter an emergency while on their routes.
“Dayna’s activism and leadership in the community has been critical in Waste Pro’s growth and success in the Gainesville market and overall Northeast Florida Region,” said Northeast Florida Regional Vice President Brian Wintjen. “We are proud to have her representing Waste Pro and can’t wait to see what is next for her.”
