York Area Solid Waste Agency

Jointly Owned by the City of York and York County. 

The York Area Solid Waste Agency is jointly owned by York County and the City of York. The City Public Works Department operates the site.
The disposal site serves the City of York, York County communities, and some adjacent counties and communities. It has an estimated life of 80 years.
Site facilities include landfill, transfer station, equipment storage building, construction and demolition disposal, and recycling facility.
The Agency has contracted with Mosaic to operate a recycling center onsite.
This is a drop-off facility with some collection provided to volume users.
Most recyclable materials are processed by baling, crushing and/or chipping prior to shipment.
User fees finance the solid waste disposal operation. User fees are weight-based per ton with all material weighed over state-approved scales.
The Operations Superintendent can make provisions for no-charge concrete debris disposal at a different site.
