Household Hazardous Waste Reports
Under the Small Business and Household Pollution Prevention Act (Act 190 of 1996), DEP reimburses up to 50 percent of eligible HHW program costs, not to exceed $100,000 per county, per fiscal year. Most sponsors that register a HHW collection or drop-off program with DEP are eligible to apply for reimbursement.
Collection events may be held by municipalities or private sponsors, if the program is registered with the DEP. DEP gives funding priority to existing programs and those operated by counties, multi-county groups, and first- and second-class cities, as required by Act 190.
