Working in beautiful Lancaster and Dauphin Counties, we are constantly reminded that the world around us is an amazing place, rich with natural resources, diverse wildlife, and heritage. As such, LCSWMA recognizes our responsibility for managing and disposing waste while also using sustainable systems that reduce our own eco footprint.
To assist with accomplishing LCSWMA’s mission of managing waste as a resource to protect and benefit our community, LCSWMA developed and implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS). LCSWMA’s EMS is approved by the International Organization of Standards (ISO 14001), and takes a comprehensive, proactive approach to reducing our impact on the local ecosystem and encompasses the following:
As a member of the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC), LCSWMA understands the intrinsic value that our landholdings have for local wildlife. We became a member of the WHC in order to maximize opportunities to engage in habitat conservation, biodiversity promulgation and public education at our facilities. Both our closed Creswell Landfill and active Frey Farm Landfill are Certified Gold through the Wildlife Habitat Council’s Conservation Certification program.
