Commercial Recycling Requirements by Municipality, County and State
Act 101 of 1988 requires commercial, institutional and municipal establishments located in Pennsylvania’s mandated municipalities* to recycle high-grade office paper, corrugated paper, aluminum and leaf waste. In addition, establishments must recycle any other materials included in the municipality’s recycling ordinance or regulations, which may include glass, newsprint, plastics, and/or steel and bimetallic cans.
(*Reference Act 101 of 1988. Pennsylvania’s “Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act.” ¬ß1501(c)(1)(iii). Visit PA’s DEP Website for info.)
In addition to Pennsylvania state regulations, many municipalities or counties may have additional recycling requirements or laws in place that commercial businesses must follow.
Our Commercial Recycling Team will help you navigate the commercial recycling process and help you answer a few of the basic questions, including:
- Do I have to file an official recycling plan with the municipality or county in which my business operates?
- Do I have to publicly post my recycling plan and distribute copies to my employees?
- Must I segregate recycles from trash at the point of generation?
