Pennsylvania's Act 101 and other state laws, effective September 1990, require that all commercial establishments recycle.
Who Must Comply? All offices, restaurants, grocery stores, retail shops, service shops, schools, churches, civic groups and any other establishments that are not residences must comply.
How does an establishment comply? 1. Contact Penn Waste or whomever you have contracted as your waste hauler. 2. Each calendar year, you are required to report how much you recycled and the items recycled. **The commercial recycling report form can be found by clicking the link below.
Fines & Penalties: All businesses and establishments that generate recyclable materials are required to recycle. Fines and penalties can reach $1,000 per day and per occurance.
Your business can benefit from recycling with these examples:
Save money and increase revenue: Recycle scrap metal from a construction job site at a scrap yard and get paid for it.
Save energy: Preheat water by using heat energy to recover the heat from air conditioners.
Reduce pollution: Be environmentally friendly by recycling and reducing the amount of waste you send to landfills. It's good for our air and conserves valuable land.
