to Make Waste a Resource
On a Mission to Make Waste a Resource

LCSWMA manages the trash and recyclable materials from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania homes and businesses, as well as trash from the City of Harrisburg and surrounding Dauphin County communities. Once the waste is delivered by private haulers, LCSWMA employs a multi-step approach to disposal and processing, called an Integrated System. This Integrated System not only saves significant landfill capacity, it also creates clean, renewable energy.

On a Mission

Managing Waste as a Resource to Protect and Benefit Our Community

While LCSWMA recognizes that trash is not the first thing on your mind (or perhaps at all); we work hard to ensure that what happens to your waste is something you do not have to worry about. This is why LCSWMA exists: to serve you. And since our inception in 1954, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to protect the environment and serve our community with excellence.
