About the Final Municipal Solid Waste Management Plan
The York County Solid Waste Authority began the process of updating the countywide Municipal Waste Management Plan (Plan) in 2010. A Municipal Waste Advisory Committee (MWAC) was appointed in 2011 and consists of individuals from all classes of municipalities, citizen organizations, private industry, solid waste businesses, and the recycling industry. These appointed individuals represented the interests of the community as stipulated by Section 503 (a) of Act 101 by providing input to the Authority as it updated the county Municipal Waste Management Plan.
The Plan was submitted for review to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) in December, 2013. PADEP approved the Plan on February 20, 2014. The final document with PADEP’s suggested revisions was received by the Authority on April 2, 2014. The Plan is a 25-year Plan and will serve as the blueprint for the Authority’s operations and programs into the future.
