    Who is LCSWMA?

    LCSWMA, or the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority, is focused on protecting people and the environment, while contributing to a more sustainable community. After you place your trash and recycling at the curb, waste haulers collect the material and deliver it to LCSWMA to manage through our Integrated System. We then transform the waste into a resource by protecting land, generating renewable energy, and investing back into our community.

    Help Protect the Community!
