Pennsylvania’s Act 101 of 1988 requires counties to develop and update waste management plans at ten year intervals to ensure there are sufficient ways and space for disposing waste. Plans should also outline strategies for reducing, reusing, or recycling our waste to lessen the amount we need to dispose of. Your input will be used to determine which programs the county should offer and how those programs should be funded.

Program Funding Background

County waste management and recycling programs can be funded with user fees or real estate tax revenues. Fee based programs are funded by the residents who choose to use and in turn pay for a given service. Programs can also be funded using revenue from county real estate taxes that are based on the value of a resident’s land and buildings. Residents pay property taxes and those revenues are used to fund programs regardless of whether or not the tax paying resident uses the program.
