To keep you updated on activities and current events, the York County Planning Commission has created E-Alerts.  These E-Alerts are just another way to keep you connected with what is taking place in and around your community.  Please explore the articles below or visit the links to the left for other helpful information.

The County funds housing activities, community development projects, activities addressing homelessness, and transportation enhancements that take place in the 72 municipalities located within its boundaries.  Funding for these projects comes from Federal and State sources.  This report is an annual update and cumulative summary of the activities funded from 1977 through 2015.  It is compiled by the YCPC on an annual basis.  To view or print the report, visit and select the "Reports and Documents" tab on the home page, select the letter "C" and scroll down to "Community Improvements Projects Report".
At the regular Board of Commissioners meeting on January 27th, the Board of Commissioners voted to support the findings of the Stormwater Authority Feasibility Study and charged the Planning Commission to move forward with an implementation plan to create a regional stormwater organization. The implementation plan is intended to address a number of issues related to the formation of a regional stormwater entity, including:

* The scope of the regional organization
* The funding sources and staffing of the organization
* The division of labor between a regional organization and individual municipalities
* The legal authority for the formation of the entity
* Whether the regional organization or the municipalities would hold the required permits
* The methodology for selecting stormwater projects to be funded

York County municipalities are already working cooperatively as part of the York County Stormwater Consortium to plan, fund and construct projects that reduce nutrients to improve local water quality and Chesapeake Bay water quality.

To read the Stormwater Authority Feasibility Study, visit the York County Planning Commission website under the Reports and Documents Section.

     York County Solid Waste Authority to Launch a Residential
   Electronics Recycling Program Starting April 5, 2016

The York County Solid Waste Authority will launch a Residential Electronics Recycling Program in York County beginning on Tuesday April 5, 2016. The program is free and open to York County residents ONLY and will now be conducted Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. every week at the Authority's Yard Waste Site located off of Flour Mill Road in Manchester Township. Saturday events will no longer be conducted at the Yard Waste Site.  
Penn and Fairview Townships will also be conducting electronics recycling collection programs. Both Penn and Fairview will accept electronics from all York County residents and offer weekday and Saturday collection hours. Please call, or visit their web sites for times and locations: Penn Township, 717-637-1561,, Fairview Township, 717-901-5200:
The Authority's new e-scrap management contract is with electronics recycling vendor ECOvanta and extends only to December 31, 2016. The Authority is pursuing program alternatives for 2017.
Act 108 bans both the disposal and collection of certain electronic "covered devices". Electronics currently banned from hauler collection and disposal in PA waste disposal facilities include: televisions, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (anything that connects to a computer such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, etc.). Material accepted in the program includes these electronic "covered devices" as well as other electronic recyclables including cell phones, vacuum cleaners, alarm clocks, irons and coffee makers or anything with a plug that does not contain Freons. Examples of Freon-containing items include refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.  
Act 108, the Covered Device Recycling Act, applies only to residential sources of electronic devices specified in the Act.   As such, Original Equipment Manufacturers providing recycling capacity to electronics recycling vendors will not accept electronics from non-residential sources. York County organizations, schools and businesses that wish to recycle electronic devices may contact electronics recycling vendors directly. A list of recycling vendors is also located on our website at:
The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated system that emphasizes waste reduction, reuse, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township. The Resource Recovery Center manages York County's household and commercial waste, as well as some manufacturing waste.
