Brownfield  Redevelopment ~ Land Recycling Program

Brownfield Redevelopment is a combined effort of our Land Recycling Program and our Brownfield Action Team.

Today, Pennsylvania’s approach to the redevelopment of brownfields has proven to be a national model for transforming abandoned, idle properties into economic opportunities. We have overcome the traditional concerns about investing in brownfield properties and have created new economic and environmental opportunities for all Pennsylvania communities.

Land Recycling Program (Voluntary Cleanup Program)

Familiarly known as the Act 2, the Land Recycling Program encourages the voluntary cleanup and reuse of contaminated commercial and industrial sites. The Land Recycling Program is built on four cornerstones that break down redevelopment obstacles. They are:

  1. Uniform cleanup standards,
  2. Liability relief,
  3. Standardized reviews and time limits, and
  4. Financial assistance.

The Land Recycling Program allows an owner or purchaser of a brownfield site to choose any one or combination of cleanup standards to guide the remediation. By meeting one or a combination of the background standard, the statewide health standard or the site-specific standard, the remediator will receive liability relief for the property.
