Trash/Recycle

Penn Waste collects trash Monday and Thursdays. Recycle bins and large item pickup is collected on Thursdays only. Please have trash out the night before (no earlier than 8:00 PM) or early in the morning (no later than 6:00 AM). If trash collection falls on a holiday then trash pickup that week will be delayed by one day. For more information please visit the Penn Waste website at www.pennwaste.com or ycswa.org

2017 Quarterly Water, Sewer and Garbage bills will be mailed the first week of January, April, July and October. Due dates are as follows: February 10, 2017, May 12, 2017, August 11, 2017 & November 13, 2017. A 15% penalty fee will be added to accounts if payment is received after the due date.

Reminder to Residents:

  • Garbage cans must not exceed the 50 lb weight limit. If cans are too heavy, the cans will be left until the trash is separated into multiple cans. Cans that are too heavy can cause an injury for the garbage men.
  • All trash must be properly bagged. The garbage men cannot collect small loose items as this is too time consuming.
  • Dog waste must be bagged and tied! Dog waste placed in trash cans without being bagged and tied gets spilled when the garbage men are emptying the cans. Loose dog waste creates a health issue when it spills on the garbage men and on the ground.
     

 

Windsor Borough residents are required to recycle all approved materials

Electronics Recycling: The York County Solid Waste Authority will launch a Residential Electronics Recycling Program in York County beginning on Tuesday April 5, 2016. The program is free and open to York County residents ONLY and will now be conducted Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. every week at the Authority’s Yard Waste Site located off of Flour Mill Road in Manchester Township. Saturday events will no longer be conducted at the Yard Waste Site.

The Authority’s new e-scrap management contract is with electronics recycling vendor ECOvanta and extends only to December 31, 2016. The Authority is pursuing program alternatives for 2017. Act 108 bans both the disposal and collection of certain electronic “covered devices”. Electronics currently banned from hauler collection and disposal in PA waste disposal facilities include: televisions, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (anything that connects to a computer such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, etc.). Material accepted in the program includes these electronic “covered devices” 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 Freons. Examples of Freon-containing items include refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.
 

Keep PA Beautiful just launched a new website (http://ewastepa.org/ ) to address the Electronic Recycling issues in Pennsylvania.
