Dorothy Redding Turner was born in Jamestown, New York on January 18, 1913, the daughter of Samuel and Ethel Rhodes Redding. She was a member of the General Federation of Women's Cubs from 1956 to 1958, served as president of the Erie County Federation of Women's Clubs from 1958 to 1960, was Northwest District Director of the Pennsylvania Federation of Women's Clubs from 1974 to 1976, and served eight years as chairman of the Pennsylvania Federation's international affairs department. She became a member of the Pennsylvania Solid Waste Management Advisory Committee from 1973 to 1982, and then chairman of the Resource Recovery Subcommittee in 1983. She died in Erie, Pennsylvania on August 31, 1989.

The Solid Waste Management Advisory Committee was created to advise the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Waste Management, which in turn provides management oversight and support for the state with regard to hazardous, municipal, and residual waste programs, environmental cleanup programs, municipal waste planning and recycling programs, and the storage tank program. The Bureau also provides technical and administrative support to the Department's Solid Waste Advisory Committee, and manages the HSCA (Hazardous Site Cleanup Act), Recycling, and Storage Tank Funds.

Dorothy Turner's papers include minutes, proceedings, copies of legislation, a master plan, and a final report of the Solid Waste Management Advisory Committee.

As of October 2009, this collection remains unprocessed.
