PRPA's Green Scene


Green Ports Initiative

The Green Ports Initiative is a joint commitment of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority, Delaware River Port Authority, and the South Jersey Port Corporation. The three agencies are committed to better environmental practices, that will lead to cleaner air and water, and more healthful daily operations.

Clean Truck Grant Program

Clean Truck Grant Program Available for Port of Philadelphia Truckers!
Mid-Atlantic Green Operator “Go” Program

As part of the PRPA’s environmental sustainability efforts, we are glad to publicize the Green Operator Program, which supports motor carriers with service to the Port of Philadelphia.  The Program can provide truckers with up to $20,000 towards a newer vehicle.  Since newer trucks are less polluting, this program will improve air quality throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Recycling Efforts

PRPA has always had a recycling program in place and is continually upgraded to reflect the needs of the times.

Currently, PRPA recycles its paper, newsprint, cardboard, and aluminium cans. Incandescent light bulbs are replaced with compact fluorescent light bulbs.




Electronic Recycling

PRPA's Management Information Services Department has been doing their part to
recycle E-Waste. The program is extended to anyone who wishes to recycle the following items:

Laser Toner Cartridges
Ink Jet Cartridges
Cell Phones
Digital Cameras
Laptop & Notebook Computers
MP3 Players

The items do not need to be in working order. Also, if anyone has an excess supply of unused laser or ink jet cartridges, they are also collected and sent to be recycled. Items may be brought to the drop off display located in the lobby of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority Administration Building.
