Christmas Tree Pick Up Dates (Change in dates)

Posted on: December 8th, 2020

Penn Waste will now be collecting Christmas Trees on Saturday, January 15th and January 22nd. Please have your trees at the curb for these specific days only.

Other Option: Recycle your Christmas Tree with the York County Solid Waste Authority

RECYCLE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE AFTER THE HOLIDAY SEASON

The York County Solid Waste Authority will hold a FREE Christmas Tree Recycling Program for all York County residents. Beginning December 26, 2021, residents may bring their tree to the parking lot located 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, 2022. This is the 34th year the Authority 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.

The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, education, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center, a Small Load Drop Off Facility, a Recyclable Materials Drop-off Center, Ash Recycling & Processing Facility, the now closed York County Sanitary Landfill which hosts the Hopewell Area Recreational Complex and an Education Center.

Directions to the parking lot across from the York County Resource Recovery Center: 

From I-83: Proceed on I-83 to Exit 21.  As you come off the exit ramp, get immediately into the far left turning lane and proceed to stoplight at intersection of Toronita Street and Rt. 30E (you will see the “Round the Clock Diner” at this intersection).

At the stoplight, turn left onto Toronita Street (Toronita turns into Blackbridge Road).  Proceed approximately 1 1/2 miles and follow signs to Christmas Tree Recycling drop-off. 

From Rt. 30: At the stoplight at the intersection of Toronita Street and Rt. 30 (you will see the “Round the Clock Diner” at this intersection), turn north onto Toronita Street (Toronita turns into Blackbridge Road).  Proceed approximately 1 1/2 miles and follow signs to Christmas Tree Recycling drop-off.

Blasting/Night Work at Codorus Quarry Site – Core5 Phase I Project

The Township has been notified on behalf of the Developer, Core5 Industrial Partners, that on January 5th between 11am and 2pm blasting will commence.

Please call the Township Office to receive the site contact information for any concerns or complaints regarding this project. Blasting reports are required by the Township Ordinances and are public record upon request to review. We do not receive these reports right away. It does take a few weeks for the Township to receive them.

You may also contact DEP for further complaints in regards to Explosive Regulation in Pennsylvania. The second page of this document gives contact information.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.

I-83 Exit 26 Project – York County Planning Commission

Posted on: August 18th, 2020

Click here to view the Page Information for this Project

The I-83 Master Plan recommended a new interchange — Exit 26 at SR 921/Canal Road —to alleviate area congestion and improve traffic flow at Exit 24 to the south (SR 238/Church Road; Emigsville) and Exit 28 to the north (SR 297/North Susquehanna Trail; Strinestown). 

If Exit 26 is approved by PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the new interchange will take several years to fund and build. Meanwhile, development pressure in the vicinity of future Exit 26 will likely intensify. 

The four adjacent municipalities—Conewago, East Manchester, and Manchester townships and Manchester Borough—are proactively preparing a land use plan for the Exit 26 impact area (parcels within a five-minute drive of the proposed interchange or other areas identified by the steering committee). The plan may affirm current zoning or recommend revisions in one or more municipalities. The plan’s recommendations would be implemented through municipal zoning updates. 

Snow & Ice Removal on Sidewalks

Posted on: November 11th, 2019

Snow and Ice Ordinance Section

All sidewalks shall be kept in an ice- and snow-free condition at all times. No notice will be given. Tickets can be issued. It is suggested to wait until after the snow plows come through to shovel your sidewalks because you do have 24 hours after the weather event ceases. If the snow plow pushes snow back onto your sidewalks, you are expected to clear them. Please do not shovel snow onto the streets to prevent this from happening. Sometimes it is inevitable and please remember that clearing the snow is a team effort between the Township, State, residents and businesses. Below is a helpful diagram on how to clear your driveway. Thank you.
