The Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority has created a standing committee made to prevent, control, and clean up litter in all of Monroe County.
This committee will be “picking up” the great work previously accomplished by the Litter Control and Beautification Board.
The Committee is made up of the representatives from the PA Department of Transportation, the Monroe County Planning Commission, the Monroe County Conservation District, the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, the Greater Pocono Mountains Chamber of Commerce, Municipal Representatives, and residents of the county. Funding and legal issues initiated the change from a volunteer organization to a more structured organization.
With its management and operation experience, ability to receive grant funding, and willingness to address municipal waste issues, the Waste Authority will prove to be the best fit for our county.
