RECYCLING


We are no longer able to continue service of recycling at the Public Works building. Republic Services has informed us that our bins are continually filled with all kinds of trash, home improvement materials and debris that is not recyclables. When the driver takes the can to Penn Waste, it is being rejected due to the contamination of the recyclables. The driver is then forced to leave there and go to the landfill or burner.

AT NO CHARGE, RESIDENTS CAN TAKE THEIR RECYCLABLES TO THE LANDFILL AT 4400 MT. PISGAH RD.
The landfill’s hours are Monday – Friday 6:00 am to 3:30 pm and Saturday 6:00 am to 10:00 am.

The Public Works area will be under 24 hour surveillance. Anyone caught dumping will be prosecuted.


 

The Township's highway department offers brush drop-off for Lower Windsor Township residents. Proof of residency is required.

Signs will designate the drop-off area and employees will be available to assist. ITEMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AT ANY OTHER TIME.

RESIDENTIAL ELECTRONICS RECYCLING PROGRAM TO RELOCATE AND FEATURE EXTENDED DAYS AND HOURS
 

 The York County Solid Waste Authority’s free Residential Electronics Recycling Program will relocate from the current collection site on Blackbridge Road to the Small Load Drop-off Facility at the York County Resource Recovery Center starting Monday, October 2, 2017. Starting October 2, electronics will be accepted from residents Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.

Residents delivering electronics will enter the York County Resource Recovery Center, located at 2651 Blackbridge Road, and proceed toward the scales. A worker will confirm delivery of electronics only and provide a placard enabling free delivery. Residents will then follow “Public Drop-off” signs to the Small Load Drop-off Facility. Residents will show the electronics placard to the Small Load Drop-off Facility attendant who will direct them to the electronics off-load area. Upon exiting the Small Load Drop-off Facility, residents will be directed to the designated exit for the Resource Recovery Center where they will return the electronics placard and exit the site.

ACCEPTED ITEMS: televisions: there is a limit of five televisions per visit, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (anything that connects to a computer such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, etc.), as well as other electronic recyclables including cell phones, vacuum cleaners, alarm clocks, irons and coffee makers or anything with a plug that does not contain Freon. Examples of Freon-containing items include refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.

Under PA Act 108 (the state’s Covered Device Recycling Act), it is unlawful for Pennsylvania landfills and resource recovery facilities to accept specific electronic devices (computers, computer peripherals and televisions) for disposal. PA waste haulers are also prohibited from collecting these electronics for disposal.

Businesses, schools and organizations: York County businesses, schools and organizations are not eligible to participate in the residential electronics recycling program. Businesses, schools and organizations must make their own arrangements with an electronics recycling vendor to properly manage their electronics. A list of vendors is located on our website at www.ycswa.com.
