2020 Road/Alley Paving Notice

READ THE FULL NOTICE BY CLICKING ON THIS LINK2020 Proposed Paving letter to residents

Lancaster Township has a continuous road maintenance plan for the up-keep of all township roads and alleys. It is important that our roads are properly maintained in order to avoid much more costly repairs or replacement due to neglect. Paving will take place between July 1st and August 15th.

During the actual paving days you will experience some inconvenience:
• No Parking on street or alley during the days of milling or paving
• Street and Alley closed for several hours on paving days

You will be notified of specific paving days for your road at least 48 hours in advance.
If you have special needs on the day of your street paving, please call 717-293-1733 or 717-291-1213. We will make every effort to accommodate your needs. If you have questions, call Mike Hamlin or email:  mhamlin@twp.lancaster.pa.us

Woody Waste Facility and Yard Waste Bags

NOTICE – APRIL 3, 2020:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, the Lancaster Township Woody Waste (yard waste) facility will remain closed until at least until May 1, 2020.

The contracted waste hauler (Waste Management) will be picking up yard waste curbside every other week beginning April 13 and continuing until October 12, 2020. Curbside pickup details can be found here at this link:   http://www.twp.lancaster.pa.us/yard-waste-collection .

The township public works crew will drop yard waste bags off weekly to those residents that send an email to bags@twp.lancaster.pa.us. You may ask for ten (10) bags at a time, and they will be dropped at the end of your driveway.

As a convenience, we have put a large pile of mulch/compost outside of the Maple Grove quarry entrance for residents to self-load. There is no charge for the mulch/compost, and we will keep the pile stocked while supplies last. Access the mulch/compost pile via Elm Avenue (behind Giant at Stone Mill Plaza), and you MUST leave the site via Columbia Avenue.
