YCSWA Statement Regarding COVID-19

Out of an abundance of caution, and in light of new guidelines presented by Governor Wolf today in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the York County Solid Waste Authority Management Center office will be closed to the public. However, many staff will be working and residents may call during regular business hours with questions. Residents are encouraged to visit www.ycswa.com to get more information about managing garbage.

In addition, the York County Solid Waste Authority is changing the York County Resource Recovery Center’s (also known as “the Incinerator”) Saturday operational hours to the following:

Registered commercial waste haulers who are account holders may access the YCRRC from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. The YCRRC will be closed on Saturdays to residential deliveries, effective Saturday, March 21, 2020 until further notice.

UNDER THE GOVERNOR’S STAY AT HOME ORDER, WE URGE RESIDENTS NOT TO VISIT THE RESOURCE RECOVERY CENTER UNTIL THE ORDER IS LIFTED.

Monday – Friday operating hours will remain per normal established operating hours:

  • Commercial Waste Haulers Who Are Account Holders: 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Residents: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Our goal is to act out of an abundance of caution to protect the health and safety of our employees, waste haulers and the citizens we serve. We appreciate your understanding at this challenging time. When it is safe to return to regular Saturday operating hours, we will issue an email and post information on our website and social media outlets.

Waste Hauler Collection: Many residential waste haulers have now temporarily suspended bulk item and yard waste collection to limit worker exposure to Covid-19. Please help keep waste workers safe: bag and tie all waste and place it in your waste receptacle if you have one.  Recyclables must be in your recycling container. Do not put loose items out next to waste or recycling receptacles. They will not be collected. Your cooperation is APPRECIATED.
