The York County Solid Waste Authority Suspends

Residential Electronics Recycling Due to Upswing in Covid-19

Beginning Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the York County Solid Waste Authority will suspend residential electronics recycling until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to reduce person-to-person contact.  Governor Wolf has urged residents to stay at home or work from home and asked that residents travel only for essential services.  Essential travel includes things like commuting to an essential job, picking up supplies like groceries and medicine, and checking on family and pets in other households. Residents who would normally bring their electronic devices to the Authority’s free electronics recycling program should hold onto their electronic devices until the pandemic has passed.  Once it is safe to do so, the Authority will reopen electronics recycling to residents.

The York County Solid Waste 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 in Manchester Township and owns and operates a Recyclable Materials Drop-off Center, a Small Load Drop-off Facility, an Education Center and an Ash Recycling and Processing Facility.






The York County Commissioners on April 29 passed a resolution which waived the penalty on the county portion of property owners' real estate tax bill if paid in full by Dec. 31, 2020. This includes regular and interim tax bill.

A 10 percent penalty will be assessed on any real estate taxes that remain unpaid after Dec. 31, 2020.

Property owners can pay the county portion of their real estate taxes by mail or in person. The York County Treasurer's office is on the first floor of the York County Administrative Center, 28 E. Market St., York, PA 17401.

For questions regarding the municipal amount due, please contact the York County Treasurer’s Office at 717-771-9667. The County cannot accept partial payments on any real estate tax bill.

Questions regarding tax payments for municipalities, which the Treasurer’s Office does not collect for, should be directed to the elected or appointed tax collector for the municipality.

Several residents have recently asked the Supervisors to consider an ordinance fining residents who blow grass clippings on to roads. While Supervisors are reluctant to adopt an ordinance, they are encouraging residents to use common sense and not blow grass onto the roads. Grass on roads can be extremely slick for motorcyclists, especially if it’s wet, almost resembling ice. It also can wash and clog up storm drains which can cause drainage issues that might create excessive water on the roads. Lawsuits have been filed against property owners which involved accidents, where they claimed grass clippings created a dangerous situation.

PLEASE think of the safety of others and BLOW YOUR GRASS back into your own property!
