Regional Solid Waste Plan Development

Solid waste management plan overview

The County Commissioners of the Five-County Region encompassing Columbia, Montour, Lycoming, Union and Snyder Counties underwent a comprehensive, multi-year effort to create a Regional Solid Waste Plan. The Plan will meet the collective waste capacity needs of the region for a ten year period, as required by Pennsylvania law.

Lycoming County acted as the lead agency for the development of the Plan. The process involved extensive stakeholder and public involvement. The Regional Plan, accepted by DEP on February 26, 2013, complies with the requirements of Act 101 (the Pennsylvania Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act of 1988), and appropriate amendments to that Act.

A one-year implementation period follows the official DEP acceptance of the plan, which occurred on February 26, 2013. The five counties have formed a Regional Steering Committee to carry out implementation of the plan. For more information, contact Steering Committee Chairman Megan Lehman (Lycoming County Lead Planner) at mlehman@lyco.org or (570) 320-2115, or Steering Committee Vice-Chairman Bob Huntington (Union County Environmental Planner) at rhuntington@unionco.org or (570) 524-3840.
