INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Recycling Coalition's longtime leader has decided to remain with the nonprofit group two weeks after announcing she planned to resign in November.

Recycling Coalition Board President James Parker says Carey Hamilton will stay on as the group's executive director under changes that will free her from administrative and program duties that have limited her time working on strategic leadership issues for the coalition.

Parker said Thursday the coalition is creating a new staff position that will oversee those duties.

Hamilton says she's thrilled with the changes, which she says will aid the group's work boosting recycling through state policy, school and community programs and public education.

Hamilton had announced Aug. 5 that she would step down at the end of November after five years at the coalition.
