Trash Disposal

Curbside Service Information:

LCSWMA does NOT provide curbside collection of trash or recycling. This service is provided by private haulers who bring the material to LCSWMA once it’s collected. Contact your local municipal office for more information on trash collection or recycling service at your home or place of business.

Plan Your Visit:

For waste that cannot be placed curbside, LCSWMA offers drop-off disposal for a fee. Materials commonly delivered to LCSWMA include:

  • Household trash
  • Bulky items, like mattresses, furniture, lawn mowers, snow blowers
  • Tires from cars, trucks, or motorcycles
  • Appliances, like refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, window AC units, washers, dryers, microwaves
  • Construction material, like from home renovations

What to Do With Special Waste:

Some materials need to be removed from the waste stream and handled separately, so as not to harm disposal facilities, people, or the environment. You may still bring this material to LCSWMA for a fee, but here is what you need to know first:

Appliances w/ Refrigerant: We accept large appliances, also called white goods, at all of our facilities. Ozone damaging gases are safely recovered and the metal is recycled.

Asbestos: Please contact LCSWMA to make special arrangements for delivery and disposal of any material containing asbestos.

Prescription Drugs: Remove drugs from their original containers and mix with an undesirable substance, like coffee grounds or litter. Put the mixture in a sealable bag or container and place in your regular trash. Do NOT flush any drugs down the toilet. For more information, visit

Sharps: If your sharps container is full, make sure it’s sealed and place in your trash. If you’re looking to ways to safely dispose of sharps (needles), contact LCSWMA for a free Safe Clip, a portable device that clips and stores up to 1,500 needles. Safe Clips are also available at pharmacies for purchase.

Medical Waste: In-home medical waste may be disposed of as regular trash. For large volumes of medical waste or waste materials generated at medical offices, health care facilities, medical research facilities or laboratories, contact the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) for proper medical waste handling instructions.

Yard Waste: Yard waste must be delivered directly to the Frey Farm Landfill. Materials include leaves, shrubbery, tree trimmings, and branches less than 24 inches in diameter, grass clippings, and stumps less than six inches in diameter.

Electronic and Household Hazardous Waste: Household hazardous waste (HHW) should be separated and taken to LCSWMA’s free drop-off facility at 1299 Harrisburg Pike. To learn more about this program, visit our HHW page.
