Environmental Services

The Environmental Bureau works to provide a clean and beautiful City by managing refuse, recycling, large item and yard waste collections.

All York city residents and commercial, municipal, and institutional establishments are mandated to recycle designated material according to the state’s act 101 and York city’s local ordinance, article 952.

To report illegal dumping or for complaints about improperly prepared trash or “move-out” piles
Please contact Public Works at 717-849-2245 or the large-item service at 717-843-1240.
The information you provide will be directed to the appropriate city department.
