In Blair County, officials are talking about getting rid of the recycling program there because it’s now “running out of cash.”
Under Pennsylvania law, recycling agencies may be abolished if they create financial hardship, but any attempt to sell off property and equipment would most most likely create a lot of public dissent over ending the program.
Officials now say that if anyone would try to abolish the program, the state would probably not accept a financial hardship argument because so far, none of the affected municipalities have had to dip into general funds to support the program.
That may change though, as the money is projected to run dry in the fall of 2018.
