The Department of Environmental Protection is urging local governments with recycling programs to take advantage of free help through its Recycling Technical Assistance Program to make their programs self-sustaining.
The Program offers advice on how to upgrade recycling programs to maximize material recovery and ensure a program’s sustainability.
Technical Assistance, up to a value of $7,5000, is available at no charge to local governments selected to participate.
The Program offers help with curbside and drop-off recycling, leaf collection, material recovery facilities, composting, commercial recycling, and pay-as-you-throw systems.
For more information, visit DEP’s Recycling Technical Assistance Program webpage. Questions should be directed to 717-787-7382 or by email to: email@example.com.
