What Is the Municipal Waste Management Plan?
The Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act of 1988 (Act 101) requires every county to develop a solid waste management program that includes an emphasis on recycling. The York County Municipal Solid Waste Management Plan outlines this program and provides a blueprint for how the county manages its waste.
The plan includes a waste management strategy for the next 25 years based on analysis of York County’s waste stream, waste handling and disposal, and recycling and waste minimization programs. The first such plan was adopted in 1991, then revised in 2014. The Municipal Waste Advisory Committee meets as needed to examine and assess the plan in order to inform any necessary changes and improvements to programs, procedures, and facilities.
Copies of the complete plan are available online (link below) and at the office of the York County Solid Waste Authority. There is no fee to review this plan.
