Welcome to Dickinson Township

Dickinson Township is located in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Its history revolves around farms, the schools, churches, mills, stores, blacksmith shops and the businesses that supplied them as well as the industries of the mountains which developed the natural resources of wood, iron ore, sand, clay and phosphorous.

NOTICE: The April 2, 2018 Board of Supervisors meeting will be used as a Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map update workshop with very limited agenda items. The Supervisors are encouraging the Township residents to attend and provide input on the proposed updates. The meeting will begin at the regularly scheduled time of 6:00 Pm.

Due to the ongoing weather event Advanced Disposal will be collecting trash today through Saturday, March 22, 2018 - March 24, 2018, on a one day delayed schedule.


The Dickinson Township staff will forward reminders at the end of September to residents requiring septic pumping. To avoid a rush on the contractors in the area, the community is reminded of the requirement for every owner of an individual sewage system to have septage or other solids removed from the treatment tank at least once every three years. Proof of pumping and/or inspection shall be provided by the owner of the individual system within 30 days of the date of service to the Township. For more information, forms, and a list of septic haulers, please see the Sewage Enforcement section of the website.

CD copies of the Comprehensive Plan are available at the Township building.
