What does the Waste Authority do?

The Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority is the lead agency responsible for implementing the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling, and Waste Reduction Act, known as Act 101

This is accomplished by providing for the planning, processing, transportation, storage, and disposal of municipal waste. The Authority is required to provide and submit on behalf of the County of Monroe a 10-year plan for a system of waste management.

The Authority Police Department enforces the county’s solid waste ordinance and the Authority’s rules and regulations to make sure all persons and haulers comply with the county plan.

We have recycling locations around the county in which the residents can dispose of their recycling. We assist all the municipalities in implementing recycling programs of their own.

Recently, we have instituted an electronics drop-off program at our Blakeslee Facility, which as been in high demand

The Waste Authority is responsible for helping many Monroe County schools jump start recycling collection programs with the help of students and staff.

Beyond such duties, we participate in many community events across the county to encourage recycling and the general reduction of municipal waste.
