The State of Pennsylvania recently passed new laws and regulations that heighten the State’s and Landfill industry’s enthusiasm to protecting the environment. This new legislation has come about in several phases-in periods over the past two years. In January 2013 the final segment will come into Law – banning Electronic Waste (E-Waste) for being disposed of in municipal landfills.
As a result Allied/Republic will no longer be collecting the banned materials from your residents effective January 1, 2013. Enclosed are several pieces of educational materials, from statewide industry sources and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) to aid in your community’s response to the new law and regulations.
The state of Pennsylvania has developed many excellent programs throughout the state to gather and process the banned E-Waste. The State has spent a significant amount of time developing the Web-Site and related materials. I would encourage you to review the attached documents and visit the Web-Site available and if necessary contact the PA DEP for additional information if necessary.
I am available to answer any questions you may have.
Please contact me by Email or by phone.

A watershed is the point to which all the land drains. Pennsylvania is divided up into six water basins, with these basins further segmented into over 100 watersheds.
Polluted stormwater runoff can negatively impact people, plants, animals and fish in a number of ways.
On July 31, 2012, ALCOSAN released a draft Wet Weather Plan fpr public review and comment. This $2 billion plan to address sewer overflows in our region will result in the largest public works project ever undertaken in Allegheny County.
The goal of this Whitehall Borough Transportation Survey is to compile data and provide these facts to the Port Authority in hopes of reinstating abandoned public transportation routes in Whitehall.
At the very least, perhaps this data could encourage private transportation companies or local businesses to service the transportation needs of Whitehall residents. In addition to this survey, please provide any comments/suggestions you may have.

Good Monday Morning Everyone, for Monday June 10, 2013
Animal Control has one new guest to share with you all this morning, she is from "Scott Township" but could also be from Carnegie or GreenTree.
She is a mix about 20 to 25 pounds, white with black markings, very very energetic and very affectionate. Has some training, wearing a flowery collar but no tags and no ID chip. Found wandering the Cypress Drive area of Scott which is near Forsythe Road which winds thru Carnegie, GreenTree and Scott.
Anyone having information regarding our current guest is asked to contact Animal Control through County Dispatch on the non emergency number (412) 279 6911 request Animal Control.
Sincerely, Roy Hayward, ACO
