Free or Reduced Cost Disposal

Free or Reduced Cost Disposal is a one-month event within Pick Up Pennsylvania, in support of the Great American Cleanup.  Sponsored by DEP and the Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association, Free or Reduced Cost Disposal will occur from April 1st to April 30th. It is during this time period that trash collected at registered events can be disposed free or at a reduced price at participating landfills.  A link to the participating landfills is provided to the coordinator after an event is registered in the event confirmation information.  If you have any questions please contact Michelle Dunn at 724-836-4121 ext. 113 or
