The York County Solid Waste Authority will hold a FREE Christmas Tree Recycling Program for all York County residents. Beginning December 26, 2022, residents may bring their tree to the parking lot directly across the street from the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township located at 2651 Blackbridge Rd. Residents must remove any ornaments, lights, tinsel and protective bags prior to dropping their tree off. H & H General Excavating will recycle the trees into mulch. This program is a great way for residents to easily dispose of their Christmas tree while reducing waste. The Christmas Tree Recycling Program runs through January 31, 2023. This is the 35th year YCSWA has offered the program.
Many municipalities now offer curbside Christmas tree collection for their residents, as well. Residents should call their municipal office to see if their municipality offers a curbside collection program.
YCSWA facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, education, recycling and resource recovery. YCSWA is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center, a Small Load Drop Off Facility, a Recyclable Materials Drop-off Center, an Ash Recycling & Processing Facility, an Education Center, and the closed York County Sanitary Landfill which hosts the Hopewell Area Recreational Complex.
