Over the past years Spring Garden Township has received Performance Grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for our efforts in recycling. We are very proud of our residents and commercial establishments for their efforts in helping us receive those grants. We ask that you keep up the great work in recycling!
As the sunset of the recycling grants near, the restrictions for receiving these grants become tighter. Grant monies that we receive are used to help cover labor and equipment for related endeavors and education materials. Keeping solid waste amounts down saves the taxpayer dollar. Thank you for the good work!
Residential Electronics Recycling Program
The York County Solid Waste Authority has relocated its Residential Electronics Recycling Program to the Small Load Drop-off Facility at the York County Resource Recovery Center on Blackbridge Road in Manchester Township. The weekly program is FREE and open to York County residents ONLY. Electronics will be accepted from residents Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
Residents delivering electronics will enter the York County Resource Recovery Center, located at 2651 Blackbridge Road, and proceed toward the scales. A worker will confirm delivery of electronics only and provide a placard enabling free delivery. Residents will then follow “Public Drop-off” signs to the Small Load Drop-off Facility. Residents will show the electronics placard to the attendant who will direct them to the electronics off-load area. Upon exiting the Small Load Drop-off Facility, residents will be directed to the designated exit for the Resource Recovery Center where they will return the electronics placard and exit the site.
ACCEPTED ITEMS: televisions: there is a limit of five (5) televisions per visit; desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (anything that connects to a computer such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, etc.), as well as other electronic recyclables including cell phones, vacuum cleaners, alarm clocks, irons and coffee makers or anything with a plug that does not contain Freon. Examples of Freon-containing items include refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.
