Information for Residents

LCSWMA manages the processing and final disposal of municipal refuse for Dauphin County and the City of Harrisburg. While our responsibilities in Lancaster County remain the same (visit to learn more), our role in Dauphin County and the City of Harrisburg is slightly different. We solely manage refuse (trash); while the Dauphin County Department of Solid Waste Management & Recycling manages the recycling and household hazardous waste services currently available in the county.

Each municipality within Dauphin County and the City of Harrisburg is responsible for your curbside trash pick-up. Contact your specific municipality and/or trash hauler for the following:

  • Trash pick-up days and times

  • Missed collection

  • Trash bins (new or replacement)

  • Billing questions and payment

  • Other questions regarding curbside trash disposal
