Through PWIA, the waste industry has played an active, constructive role in public debates over waste issues and public policy at the state level.

We support renewal of the Act 101 $2-per-ton recycling feeĀ and passage of the Waste Transportation Safety Act.

We actively participate on the Department of Environmental Protection Solid Waste Advisory Committee and the Industry & Waste Subcommittee of Pennsylvania Climate Change Advisory Committee.

Our members have frequently appeared before legislative committees and regulatory agencies to offer testimony and information on waste issues.
