Act 101, known as "Pennsylvania's Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act", requires all businesses to recycle the following items:
High grade office paper
Businesses that do not comply can face penalties of up to $1,000.
Act 101 also requires that all counties submit a report to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) which details the weight of materials that were recycled by municipalities as well as the weight of materials that were recycled by the County during the preceding calendar year. In order to complete this report, Baldwin businesses are mailed requests each year to report what they recycled. The request form can also be found here.
