Community Focus

The Wayne Township Landfill, owned and operated by the Clinton County Solid Waste Authority is focused on reducing, reusing, recycling and managing solid waste in ways that serve and preserve the local community best.

Our goal is to ensure the quality and longevity of Clinton County by properly disposing of waste materials and reusing and/or recycling materials in the best way possible. Management of the Wayne Township Landfill has allowed the Authority to contribute significantly to the surrounding community and to sustain and preserve the wonderful Pennsylvanian environment.
