Waste & Recycling Collection Contract - 2023-2027 Penn Waste

Trash and Recycling Collection Service Bidding and Contract Process

  • The Township is required by state law to procure solid waste removal services through a public competitive sealed-bid process. For the current contract, the bidding process and information was advertised on June 29,2022 and July 6, 2022. Sealed bids were due on July 20, 2022.
  • The Township received two (2) bids and the Board of Supervisors was required by state law to accept the lowest competitive bid. The Board awarded the contract at the July 28, 2022 public meeting.
  • The Penn Waste bid was the lowest cost option the Township received for trash service. The difference in cost between the two bidders was $5,197,694.11.
  • Any additional questions or concerns should be directed to the Township Administration offices, 717-757-3521 or Penn Waste, 717-767-4456

There are two changes to highlight as part of the new contract:

  • First, each residential dwelling still has the option to place up to three (3) 32-gallon resident-owned containers, or one (1) 96-gallon contractor-owned toter of waste curbside each week. The quarterly price will be the same regardless of what container option is chosen. 
  • Second, while one large item will still be accepted each week as part of this contract, residents will be required to contact Penn Waste to schedule the one large item collection at least one day prior to their normal collection day.

Unchanged for the new contract is the weekly collection of recyclables. Weekly yard waste collection will continue to occur from March through the first week in December, annually.

Any increases related to tipping fees at York County Solid Waste Authority, will be added to these quarterly totals and explanations provided, if applicable.
