Business Recycling

Recycling is Good for Business and it's the Law!

The Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act of 1988 (Act 101) requires commercial, institutional, and municipal establishments located in Pennsylvania's mandated municipalities to recycle paper, cardboard, newsprint, plastics, steel, aluminum, and bimetallic cans, glass, and leaf waste.

Recycling saves natural resources, energy, and the environment and contributes to Pennsylvania's economy. It has brought hundreds of thousands of dollars into Forks Township and funds recycling carts and equipment for our public works department.

Business Recycling Reporting

If you sign your business in with the recycling attendant, you won't need to track your recycling weight for yearly reporting - we'll do it for you!

The State of Pennsylvania and Forks Township require all commercial, institutional and municipal entities to provide businesses to submit written reports regarding the type and weight of materials recycled annually. Watch for your reporting forms in the mail in December.

Completed and signed reports containing the type and weight of materials recycled, along with any required supporting documentation, are due to Forks Township annually.
