About the Composting Technical Assistance Program


The department will be accepting new requests for composting technical assistance as of March 12, 2012.

Composting technical assistance, up to a value of $7,500, is available at no charge to Pennsylvania local governments selected to participate. The purpose of the program is to upgrade recycling programs to meet or exceed the Commonwealth's 35 percent recycling goal.

DEP, the Governor's Center for Local Government Services and the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) formed this training partnership for Pennsylvania local governments interested in achieving higher recycling rates and to ensure program sustainability.

Questions about this program may be directed to recyclepa@pa.gov, or 717-787-7382.
