Final Technical Guidance

   DEP ID: 254-2212-501. Title: County Option to Retain or Eliminate Municipal Waste Flow Control. Description: This document, originally effective in 1997, was developed to provide guidance to counties regarding their option to retain or eliminate municipal waste flow control as part of their county municipal waste management plan. In 1998, however, the Department developed policy #254-2212-504 entitled ''Guidelines for the Development of County Municipal Waste Management Plan Revisions.'' This document incorporated and contains all relevant information from #254-2212-501, making the former policy unnecessary. Therefore, the rescission of #254-2212-501 will not detrimentally impact the operations of the waste management program and will only clarify the appropriate municipal waste management plan revisions that should be followed. Effective Date: May 18, 2002. Contact: Sally Lohman at (717) 787-7382 or e-mail
