The Lehigh County Office of General Services currently handles issues related to solid waste and recycling for our residents by assisting municipal recycling coordinators with developing their individual recycling programs and as such, also serves as the Lehigh County Office of Solid Waste Management.  This includes maintaining the responsibilities of a designated "County Recycling Coordinator" ensuring that the County is in compliance with the Lehigh County Solid Waste Management Plan.  The Plan is a requirement of Pennsylvania Act 101 of 1988.  Our office also collects and maintains recycling data for submission to the State in the required annual report, also a requirement of PA Act 101.

For questions related to County or municipal run programs and events, please select a topic from our "Section Links" or "Additional Resources" on the left hand side of this page.
