Recycling & Trash Pickup

717-423-5383
1-800-338-8971


IMPORTANT: In the interest of protecting our Community during this COVID-19 coronavirus period, we ask residents to bag all of their trash to include all trash that is placed in their trash toter carts. This will prevent loose trash on our properties and roads as well as inadvertent contact by our trash disposal teams.

BULK pickups are suspended until further notice!


Attention: At the December 16, 2019 Board of Supervisors meeting; the Board voted to accept Advanced Disposal as the lowest bidder for a new three (3) year contract for a single trash hauler. Unfortunately; due to the changes in the recycling market all prices were increased to compensate for the lack of funding for recycling. In short, the Trash hauling companies must now pay to recycle, whereas in the past they were paid for recycling. Please see the new prices below.

Year number 1 of the Contract = Tag-A-Bag (6 min/year) = $60.00/Year | Additional tags = $10.00 each | Toter Cart = $70.32/quarter


The current “Garbage Guidelines” can be accessed using www.advanceddisposal.com. Customers should click on “Residential Services” and click on Garbage Guidelines in the drop down box. Under Pennsylvania the customer will then click on Dickinson Township.

BULK ITEM PICKUP: One item per week. Please phone Advanced Disposal in advance of your scheduled pick up day at 717-423-5383 or 1-800-338-8971 to notify Advanced Disposal of a large item disposal such as sofas, chests or mattresses or any Freon containing items such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners. These items will be picked up on your scheduled day.

Recycle Guidelines:

Will be picked up under a “single stream” method. There will be no need to separate your recyclables.
