In 1988, Pennsylvania passed the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act (Act 101), which requires Pennsylvania counties to:
Prepare, adopt and implement a Municipal Waste Management Plan for municipal waste generated within the county's boundaries.
Insure the availability of adequate permitted processing and disposal capacity for the municipal waste which is generated within the county's boundaries.
On or before April 1 of each year, submit a report outlining the weight or volume of materials that were recycled by municipal and county recycling programs in the preceding calendar year.
2019 Household Hazardous Waste Program will have a new format. Collection events are being planned for July, August, and September. Appointments will be required and a fee of $0.30 per pound will be charged for all acceptable material. Details coming soon.
