Transfer Station Complex

The Transfer Station Complex (TSC) serves as a central drop-off location for waste haulers collecting recycling and trash in Lancaster County. Once the material is delivered, it is loaded into LCSWMA transfer trailers and transported to LCSWMA’s two waste-to-energy facilities, our Frey Farm Landfill, or a private recycling facility for final processing and disposal.

  • The Transfer Station Complex helps to reduce collection truck traffic on local highways. In fact, for every five customer vehicles that enter the facility, only one LCSWMA transfer trailer leaves.
  • This facility receives the most visits, welcoming more than 400 customers per day.
  • Over 2,000 solar panels at the site generate enough energy to offset 80% of the facility’s annual electric needs.
  • The site also hosts our Main Office and Household Hazardous Waste Facility
