In addition to establishing a comprehensive program of controlling all phases of solid waste management and assigning responsibilities for solid waste management to the Secretary of Department of Environmental Protection, the Act also contains a special provision for wood waste. Specifically, this section allows for the combustion of wood waste without a solid waste facility permit and allows facilities to use wood waste as an alternative fuel.
