The State of Pennsylvania recently passed new laws and regulations that heighten the State’s and Landfill industry’s enthusiasm to protecting the environment.
This new legislation has come about in several phases-in periods over the past two years. In January 2013 the final segment will come into Law – banning Electronic Waste (E-Waste) for being disposed of in municipal landfills.
As a result Allied/Republic will no longer be collecting the banned materials from your residents effective January 1, 2013. Enclosed are several pieces of educational materials, from statewide industry sources and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) to aid in your community’s response to the new law and regulations.
One of the simplest and best explanations of the new law and how it affects you can be found at the Westmoreland Cleanways website.
