RED HILL RECEIVES A 2012 WASTE WATCHERS AWARD
The Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania (PROP), Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association (PWIA) has recognized The Borough of Red Hill recycling program as one of Pennsylvania’s most outstanding recycling programs/projects.
The Waste Watcher awards are given to recycling, waste reduction, reuse and composting programs in Pennsylvania that have exhibited exemplary performance. This year 100 plus municipalities, counties, private businesses, individuals and community organizations from throughout Pennsylvania are being recognized for going above and beyond what is mandated under Act 101 for their communities or programs.
Act 101 – the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act –has helped generate significant economic and environmental benefits for over 20 year now. Recycling has become a billion dollar industry in Pennsylvania. 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 and other air and water pollutants.
