The Waste Management Authority

The Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority is the lead agency responsible for implementing the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling, and Waste Reduction Act, known as Act 101

The Authority Police Department enforces the county’s solid waste ordinance and the Authority’s rules and regulations to make sure all persons and haulers comply with the county plan. 


Here’s how you can make a difference:

If you believe you have witnessed what looked to be illegal dumping or other environmental abuses, please take the time to file a complaint. Feel free to submit a complaint via our online complaint form or call us and ask to speak directly with a police officer.

The Waste Authority offers a reward system that gives you an incentive to keep Monroe County clean and free of litter. If the Waste Authority wins the conviction in District Court on behalf of your complaint, you will be rewarded $25.00 and the satisfaction of helping to eliminate illegal dumping.

Call the Waste Authority at 570-643-6100 or submit a complaint online.

What to do about abandoned properties

We understand that there is concern about a lack of action due to abandoned, dilapidated properties.  If you live near an eyesore property, the first thing you should do is call the township and complain.  (570) 595-2602  If a phone call doesn't get things done sufficiently, pdfthere is a "complaint" form (PDF) that you can file to officially record your complaint with the supervisors.  Once your complaint is on file, a zoning officer will review the property in question and determine with the supervisors whether further action is warranted. 

There are local zoning ordinances that say that you don't need to be staring at piles of trash in your neighbor's driveway.
