PENNSYLVANIA LAW requires municipalities with populations above 5,000 to recycle. By that law, East Cocalico Township must provide a curbside-recycling program to residents and commercial businesses. The Township considered a number of different types of programs before deciding to license waste haulers. Licensing allows residents and commercial businesses to continue to choose their own haulers while guaranteeing that they receive necessary services – most notably, curbside collection of recyclables. A licensed waste hauling program requires haulers to meet certain general conditions to do business in East Cocalico Township. Chief among those conditions is the requirement to pick up recyclable materials separated by residents and to collect those materials on the same day that they pick up trash. Haulers who regularly collect trash from your home or business also must collect the following recyclable materials: newsprint, clear and colored glass, food and beverage cans, tires and large appliances (call you Hauler for the schedule of picking of large items; they must collect tires and appliances at least twice a year). Yard waste (primarily grass and leaves) must be picked up between April 1 and October 15. Leaves must be picked up at least four times each year between October 15 and December 1. Yard waste is defined as all garden residues, leaves, shrubbery, tree trimmings, grass clippings, and sod. Recycling - All Persons within the Municipality shall Source Separate Designated Recyclable Materials generated by such Person or generated within a Residential Unit, Multi-Family Unit or Non-Residential Unit occupied by such Person. The Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA) has a Hazardous Waste facility. This facility will take fluorescent bulbs, computers, paint cans, full aerosol cans, and other hazardous material (empty aerosol cans should be put out with your regular trash). LCSWMA promotes education in the areas of environmentally sound waste management through informational brochures, cooperative efforts with local, state and federal government agencies, and participation in community development efforts. Please call (717)397-9968 for information or visit their website by clicking here: LCSWMA.
