About Us / Our Role

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 24/7.  We assist all the municipalities in implementing recycling programs of their own. 

We have recently instituted an electronics drop off program at our Blakeslee Facility which as been in high demand Education is an important facet of the Waste Authority.  We are responsible for helping many Monroe County schools jump start the students and staff into recycling collection programs.

Additionally we participate in many community events across the county to encourage recycling and the general reduction of municipal waste.
