What is Pennsylvania Act 101 and does our business have to respond?

Pennsylvania Act 101 mandates recycling in larger municipalities with the goals of reducing waste generation and promoting recycling.

The act requires businesses to recycle glass bottles, steel cans, aluminum cans, office paper, and cardboard. Within our local area, if your business is located in the City of Williamsport, Loyalsock Township, Old Lycoming Township, South Williamsport or Montoursville Borough, you will be required to report the estimated tonnage of recycling activity yearly. Businesses and industries in non-mandated communities are encouraged to report their recycling activities.

North Central Sight Services, Inc. tracks this easily for you when you use our document shredding and recycling programs. We can provide the tonnage for the Annual Recycling Report/4500-FM-SW0011 Form.
