Pennsylvania Land-Recycling Program Website Earns National Award

Harrisburg, PA - Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary David E. Hess announced that the National Association of Environmental Professionals has recognized Pennsylvania's land-recycling website - PASiteFinder.com - with its National Environmental Excellence Award.

"In developing this program, Pennsylvania DEP is providing a significant, systematic approach that allows brownfield buyers and sellers or other stakeholders to recycle real estate into a sound investment," the National Association of Environmental Pro-fessionals Awards Committee wrote. "PASiteFinder.com becomes an obvious example of outstanding environmental management."

The site provides a "one-stop shop" for land-recycling information in Pennsylvania. It allows users to search for properties by location, acreage, sale or lease price, and building space. The website also provides access to experts who can help find financing and who can offer critical environmental and economic-development advice.
