Summit Daily/Brad Odekirk On the clock - Gregg Kilcoyne

Summit local Gregg Kilcoyne’s mother didn’t originally intend for her son’s name to end in two “g’s.””Both my mom and my aunt wanted to name their sons Greg,” Kilcoyne said. “My aunt had her baby first though, so she got to name him Greg with one ‘g.'”Kilcoyne’s name isn’t all that sets him apart though. He lets his actions speak when it comes to his compassion for environmental causes. Kilcoyne makes his living as a recycling technician for the Summit Recycling Project based in Frisco. “The cause” is one of the main aspects Kilcoyne finds most rewarding about his job.What do you like best

about your job?”Being outside – that’s the thing I like the most. I like all the people I work with. And I really like the cause too. I think it’s important for people to be aware of.”What do you find most challenging about your job?”The weather holds us back a lot. Sometimes it keeps us from working at all. We have to drive the truck (full of recylables) to Denver, so bad weather can make that a problem. It can be hard on the equipment, as well.”

What brought you to Summit County?”It was originally a break from school. I was on the way to California but ended up staying here. It was much more fun.”What do you do when you’re not working?”I like skiing, riding my bike, going to the rec center. Cooking’s fun, too.”

What’s something your co-workers might be surprised to know about you?”That I like them a lot more than they think. I play the role of the tough guy a lot.”
