Meet Our Mascot

Buster the Combustor Dragon™

Buster is the official mascot of the York County Solid Waste Authority. He embodies the key elements of our integrated waste management system!

  • Buster’s green dragon scales signify respect for the environment and the Authority’s goal to manage waste in a way that minimizes environmental impact. This includes an emphasis on waste reduction, reuse, and recycling.
  • His fiery breath represents the controlled combustion technology used at the York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC). This technology reduces garbage (by 90%) to ash, which produces heat. That heat is used to boil water, creating steam, which is then used to operate a turbine and generator — producing enough electricity to power more than 20,000 homes!
  • The bolt of electricity on Buster’s wings signifies the energy that the YCRRC produces from York County waste.
