Join 2 others!
Join the LRWP November 18, 10-noon for a tour of the Plainfield Municipal Utility Authority (PMUA) Plainfield Environmental Resource Center (PERC). PMUA began over 20 years ago as a local utility agency, and has now become a multi-city shared service, waste transfer and management authority. PERC is the City-owned and PMUA-operated transfer station used to facilitate the proper disposal of all solid, recyclable, electronic, bulky and vegetative wastes collected from local residents, Plainfield Department of Public Works and private businesses. Neighboring municipalities use this modern convenience center to transfer and dispose of waste as part of PMUA’s municipal shared services agreements. Our tour guide will be PMUA Executive Director (and former Trenton Mayor) Eric E. Jackson. Mr. Jackson will provide an overview of PMUA operating structure and functions, discuss current challenges and opportunities faced by the utility authority, and highlight how PMUA is promoting and encouraging actions for cleaner, litter free cities.
