2024 Congestion Management Process (CMP) Public Survey

As we all know one of the pressing issues in the Carroll Township / Dillsburg Borough area is TRAFFIC.  Now is the time to let the officials at York County know about the traffic conditions in our area!  This input is important and will help drive home the concerns and issues residents have to YCPC and YAMPO.

The York County Planning Commission (YCPC), on behalf of the York Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (YAMPO), has begun to update the Congestion Management Process (CMP), the first since 2015. In concert with updating the CMP, a public survey has been created to obtain feedback from the public about the perception and observation of congestion in York County. The goal of this survey is to gather information about the experiences, perceptions, and suggestions related to vehicular traffic and congestion locally. The responses received will help set goals and objectives for the Congestion Management Process (CMP) that reflect the desires of York County’s residents, workers, and visitors. This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey can be taken on the YCPC website. https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/6d8e456b3ea34b71baaae60362b44d7c?portalUrl=https://yorkcountypa.maps.arcgis.com

Carroll Township Collected 440 pounds of Medications in 2023 through Medication Drop-Box Program

Currently, 18 York County police department locations partner with the YCSWA to host medication take-back boxes in their police department lobbies.  The Secure Medication Take-back Box Program provides a secure disposal option for unwanted medications from residential sources at no cost to the public or to law enforcement agencies.  All York County police departments have been invited to participate.  Illegal drugs captured by law enforcement are also destroyed at no cost.

The secure medication take-back boxes, purchased by YCSWA from MedReturn, work like a mailbox: once medications are deposited, they cannot be retrieved and are contained in a locked compartment accessible only by law enforcement.  The heavy-duty green metal box bolts to the floor and wall.  Medications collected in the take-back box program are delivered by law enforcement to the Authority’s waste-to-energy facility for safe and complete destruction.  Law enforcement also maintains the box and secures medications that are received until they can be destroyed.

The Authority’s waste-to-energy facility is equipped with state-of-the-art combustion technology and air emission controls making it York County’s best waste management tool for destruction of medications and illegal drugs seized in law enforcement actions.  The facility’s operator, Covanta York Renewable Energy, also supports this method that ensures complete destruction of medications and illegal drugs at the York County Resource Recovery Center.
