New Waste Transfer Building Opens in Harrisburg

November 10, 2015 ·

LCSWMA just reached a major milestone in the transformation of the former Harrisburg incinerator site, with the opening of a new 29,800 square-foot facility at the Susquehanna Resource Management Complex (SRMC) in Harrisburg. The building adds transfer, maintenance, and administrative capacity to the site.

Constructed to address operational efficiencies and improve customer experience, the $5 million transfer building will primarily be used for construction/demolition waste loads and smaller customer deliveries. This keeps residents and smaller hauling customers off the main tipping floor of the waste-to-energy plant and out of the way of larger garbage trucks. Benefits include improved traffic flow, reduced customer on-site time, and increased safety for customers and LCSWMA staff.

In addition to the new transfer building, LCSWMA has invested approximately $8.6 million in other changes at the SRMC site over the last two years. Examples include: 1) moving the main site entrance to 19th Street, 2) installation of a new scale house with separate inbound and outbound scales, 3) numerous upgrades to the waste-to-energy plant, and 4) substantial improvements to site aesthetics. These modifications not only enhanced the aesthetics of the site, but also increased site traffic flow and reduced on-site/cueing time by an average of 50 percent.

The transformation of the SRMC demonstrates both LCSWMA’s standard of excellence, as well as a commitment to restoring the site into a community asset once again.  To view photos of the transformation at the SRMC and learn more, visit

LCSWMA Rewards Harrisburg

March 28, 2014 ·

At a press conference on Thursday, March 27th, LCSWMA CEO Jim Warner presented a check worth $150,000 to Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse for the on-time early move of the city’s Department of Public Works (DPW) operations off the Susquehanna Resource Management Complex (SRMC) site.

In February, LCSWMA paid the City of Harrisburg an initial $150,000 to help with the move. This second $150,000 check was to reward the city for moving the DPW operations within 90 days of LCSWMA acquiring the SRMC.

Mayor Papenfuse, Public Works Director Aaron Johnson and Mr. Warner all commented during the press conference on the great working relationship between the city’s DPW staff and LCSWMA employees at the SRMC, which helped DPW to meet the move deadline.

DPW relocated to a former car dealership at 19th and Paxton Streets. The old DPW buildings at the SRMC will be razed to make room for new construction.
