Although Knoebels Amusement Park has opened its doors, the Central PA Section ASCE Picnic normally held in July will not be held this year out of an abundance of caution and with everyone’s health and safety as a priority. We have reserved our same day (4th Saturday in July) for 2021 and are looking forward to gathering again at Knoebels in 2021!

Report Card for Pennsylvania's Infrastructure Featured Category - Solid Waste
Although Pennsylvania’s daily per person solid waste disposal is over half a pound of trash less than our nation’s average, the rate of disposal is on the rise.
Pennsylvania’s solid waste consists of household trash as well as waste generated by construction, commerce and industry. The solid waste infrastructure including haulers, landfills, and transfer stations remains in fair condition. Landfill capacity is sufficient and counties are required by law to plan for a minimum of 10 years’ worth of disposal. Although Pennsylvania’s daily per person solid waste disposal is over half a pound of trash less than our nation’s average, the rate of disposal is on the rise. To counteract the increase, funding is needed to strengthen and grow municipal recycling universally across the Commonwealth. Safety issues and illegal dumping incidents serve as reminders that funding for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is necessary to protect the public and support safe handling, transport, disposal, and recycling practices.
***We will be featuring a category from the Report Card each month, so check back regularly.***
