Philadelphia Tackles Illegal Dumping By Targeting Contractors' Haulers

Officials of Philadelphia's Zero Waste and Litter Cabinet are going to tackle the issue of illegal dumping of construction debris by changing their procedures for issuing construction permits to contractors so that only contractors whose haulers are approved will be given permits.

Starting Oct. 1, anyone applying for a permit for construction, demolition, or major alterations to a building has to tell the city which company is responsible for taking away the rubbish.
Applicants must select their haulers from a city registry. The idea is to make sure contractors taking advantage of the city’s construction boom are working with reputable haulers that use approved disposal facilities.
