To celebrate Earth Day every day and to promote a cleaner environment, the York County Solid Waste Authority offers a FREE litter disposal program. York County organizations, civic groups, schools and neighborhoods that want to clean up litter can dispose of it free of charge at the York County Resource Recovery Center . Groups must pre-register for a clean-up event by calling Jen Cristofoletti at the Solid Waste Authority at 717-845-1066.
Participants will be asked to provide information regarding the type of organization, contact person, phone, address and location of area to be cleaned. Once registered, groups will receive guidelines for participation and a vehicle dashboard placard that will enable them to enter the Resource Recovery Center to deliver litter. The litter disposal program is a great way for community and civic groups to participate in an event that honors our planet and cleans up our community.
Recyclable materials MUST be separated from the litter and recycled. Participants can take recyclable materials to any recycle drop-off center of their choice. A recycle drop-off center is located across from the Resource Recovery Center and can accommodate the following items: plastic (#’s 1 -7); steel, bi-metal and aluminum cans; newsprint; dry cardboard and paperboard; and unbroken clear and colored glass.
The Authority is working with Keep York County Beautiful to stop illegal dumping in our community and clean up existing dumpsites. If you are looking for a site to help clean, call Tom Smith at Keep York County Beautiful at 717-840-2375, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep York County Beautiful will assist with providing free gloves, bags and safety vests. To register for the Authority’s free litter disposal program, call Jen Cristofoletti at the Solid Waste Authority at 717-845-1066.
