PDCA is a non-profit organization representing dry cleaners and launders from Pennsylvania and Delaware. We were chartered in 1934 when local guilds and associations decided that they would be most effective when they worked together.

Since then we have continuously produced educational programs to improve our members’ technical and business skills. And we...

› Pushed for and accomplished a garment disposal law so that we did not have to keep unclaimed garments forever

› Wrote compliance calendars to make record keeping easier

› Reversed Attorney General’s attempt to fine every cleaner for gender discrimination, even when price differences were justified

› Worked with DEP, DNREC and OSHA to help members avoid fines

› Monitor and take action on issues like sales tax and current problems

PDCA is a regional affiliate of the Drycleaning and Laundry Institute (DLI), the international association representing the dry cleaning industry.
