Household Hazardous Waste Collection Rescheduled – Now Requires Pre-Registration for the Event.

The York County Solid Waste Authority Reschedules the
Residential Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program

The York County Solid Waste Authority has rescheduled its free residential household hazardous waste (HHW) collection program for Saturday, October 3, 2020.   The event was postponed in May due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  The HHW program will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Authority’s Ash Recycling and Processing Facility located at 2650 Blackbridge Road.

Due to Covid-19 and the state’s mandate to keep group gatherings to no more than 250 people, residents are now required to pre-register for the event.  Pre-registration is available by using online registration: https://www.ycswa.com/hhw-event-2020/. If residents are unable to register online, they may register by calling the Authority directly at 717-845-1066.

Residents who are unable to make it to the October 3 event may dispose of their HHW in their regular garbage.  Under state regulation, residential households are exempt from state hazardous waste regulations and may dispose of household hazardous waste in their regular garbage.   Because York County uses waste-to-energy technology to manage municipal solid waste, waste is combusted at a high temperature in enclosed, environmentally controlled combustion units and emissions are managed via advanced emissions technology.

Household hazardous waste includes any products from the home that are corrosive (drain cleaners or bleach), flammable (gasoline), reactive (chemistry kits) or toxic (pesticides).  The program benefits York County by identifying hazardous wastes found in the home and providing an opportunity to manage these materials in a safe and efficient manner.

All York County homeowners or residential tenants are eligible to bring their household hazardous waste to the collection site.  There is no fee to participate.  Business and government entities are not eligible to participate.

In Pennsylvania you now have two options for mail ballots. You may choose a mail-in ballot or an absentee ballot.

Absentee ballot – If you plan to be out of the municipality on election day or if you have a disability or illness, you should request this ballot type, which still requires you to list a reason for your ballot.

Mail-in ballot – If you aren’t an absentee voter, you may apply for a mail-in ballot – You may simply request this ballot without a reason.

The attached Zoning Map is a DRAFT that has been developed by the Carroll Township Re-Zoning Committee.  While no new Zoning Districts were created, some district boundary lines have been redrawn.  Changes to district lines took into consideration non-conforming properties and also the vision for future growth along the Township’s major travel routes. The goal is to have the revised map and text amendments ready for adoption in the first part of 2020.
