York County Solid Waste & Refuse Authority
The York County Solid Waste and Refuse Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, reuse, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township, PA and owns and monitors the now-closed York County Sanitary Landfill in Hopewell Township. The landfill has been recycled into a community recreation complex and wildlife habitat. The Authority was established in 1971 by the York County Board of Commissioners and operates as an independent, self-supported municipal Authority. Our mission: Facilitate the responsible management of all of York County’s municipal solid waste. We strive to serve the best interests of the citizens of York County in the most economically efficient and environmentally safe manner.
