Yard Waste Bag Delivery Update – 5/18/2020

Due to overwhelming demand, and to insure that the greatest number of Lancaster Township residents have access to yard waste bags, we need to suspend the automatic delivery of second and third rounds of yard waste bio bags. Only new requests for bags can be honored while supplies last.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Yard Waste Bio Bags can also be purchased at Lowes, Home Depot, and other retailers. 

Respond to the 2020 Census

The 2020 Census is underway and the most important thing you can do is respond online, by phone, or by mail. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up.

The 2020 Census asks a few simple questions about you and everyone who was living with you on April 1, 2020.

The 2020 Census counts everyone living in the United States and its five territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

Please complete your form online, by phone, or by mail. Visit my2020census.gov
to begin.
