The Local Government Academy, in partnership with Sustainable Pittsburgh and the PA Resources Council, will hold a workshop on recycling for municipal officials on March 15 in Cranberry, Pa.

 The workshop – “Recycling Renaissance” – will provide participants with an overview of the key issues surrounding municipal recycling programs, including: developing an RFP for recycling services; evaluating your recycling contract; developing recycling ordinances– examples of model ordinances will be provided; interpreting regulations to be in compliance and to compete for DEP performance grants.

This program will also introduce new recycling technologies and breakdown common myths about recycling. Participants will also learn about Cranberry Township’s successful “Pay As You Throw” recycling program and will gain valuable insight on how to implement programs such as these in their own communities.
