Waste Watcher Recognition Program

Pennsylvania Waste Watcher

The Pennsylvania Waste Watcher program recognizes recycling, waste reduction, reuse, and composting programs in Pennsylvania that have exhibited exemplary performance. 


Act 101 – the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act –has helped generate significant economic and environmental benefits for over 20 years now.  Recycling has become a billion dollar industry in Pennsylvania and with each passing year, there is a steady increase in the amount of collected recyclables and the number of jobs created by the industry.  Recycling has saved precious resources and energy, limited greenhouse emissions as well as other air and water pollutants. 

This growth and success is the result of a serious commitment to recycling by individuals, businesses, government and recycling and organics industry personnel like these award winners.

The 2016 Waste Watcher Application will be available Spring 2016
