Sources of municipal waste in Greene County:
Determining what is municipal waste is based on as much on who generates it or where it was generated as it is on specific physical characteristics of the material. According to the PA Environmental Quality Board's Municipal Waste Regulations, municipal waste is garbage, refuse, industrial lunchroom or office waste and other material, including solid, liquid, semi-solid or contained gaseous material resulting from operation of residential, municipal, commercial or institutional establishments and from community activities, and sludge not meeting the definition of "residual" or "hazardous waste" from a municipal, commercial or institutional water supply treatment plant, wastewater treatment plant or air pollution control facility. That is a rather board and inclusive categorization of materials from the County to manage.

Municipal waste is generated where we live, work, and play. Every household, business, and community activity within Greene County is a generator of municipal waste in some form. A variety of sources can be identified as generators of the type of municipal waste with which most of us are familiar. They include residences, commercial establishments, government buildings, institutions, and community events. Others generate special types that are less recognizable as municipal solid waste to the average person. Therefore, as the County revised its Plan for proper solid waste management, it examined many factors to ensure that the special needs and conditions of all of these entities were considered and incorporated.
