For years York county did not have any facilities accepting recycling material. This means all those bottles, glass, and cans you so proudly rolled to the street every other week had nowhere to go! Your haulers, including Signature Waste Systems, were caught between a rock and a hard place. You were doing your part. Your efforts to keep our planet a little cleaner deserved to be rewarded. That’s why 7/1/2019 Signature Waste in collaboration with our neighbors in Tega Cay successfully petitioned to be the first and only hauler accepted at York county recycling facilities. After a successful month with Signature, in 8/1/2019, York county was finally convinced to open recycling access to all haulers, not just Signature Waste. York county was finally recycling.
Now we all have the great responsibility of doing the same in Lancaster county. Currently we have NO recycling facilities in Lancaster county. Some of our competition have resorted to claiming they recycle and are making their customers pay more for it! Not only do we have to hold these companies accountable, we have to hold our community leaders accountable. Zone for recycling centers, bring those facilities to our neighborhoods, keep our haulers honest about their recycling practices, help us make Lancaster green!
We want to hear from you!
How can we bring recycling to Lancaster?
