RESIDENTIAL BRUSH DROP OFF

Brush is defined as tree limbs (no larger than 8” in diameter and 6 feet in length), shrubbery, and bushes.  York Township accepts brush from York Township residents only as part of our recycling efforts.  Brush recycling is intended to clean up small amounts of debris from residential properties. The program is not intended to accept large tree removal projects. Large projects such as removing entire trees should employ the services of a commercial contractor. If you have large amounts of material to dispose of, please contact York Township first for approval.

The drop off site will remain open from dawn to dusk throughout the year.  The site will close from time to time in order to grind up the raw material into mulch.  Follow the website for updates.    To access the site, use the Oak Road entrance.  Drive through the gate to the designated area just past the power lines on the left.    Do not enter from Coventry Road.  This area is restricted for Township employees only.

Please participate in this program responsibly by not dumping the following:  garbage, metals, concrete, lumber, stumps, tree roots, stones, grass clippings, etc.  The drop off site may close unannounced if abuse is occurring.  Damage to the grinder can and has occurred when items other than brush go through the grinding head.  In addition, please be mindful that the brush drop off site is shared with public works operations and is under video surveillance.

The brush is processed into mulch and will be made available to Township residents when it is ready. The mulch pile is on the left in front of the gate and is on a first come first serve basis.

All other material and items you see beyond the gate are Township property and are not meant for public use.  If you see a violation, please report it to the Township or York County Regional Police Department.  The site is under constant video surveillance.

WASTE OIL COLLECTION

Waste oil may be dropped off at the Public Works Service Building Monday through Friday from 7:00am -3:30pm.  Please do not drop off oil after hours.  Waste oil must not be contaminated with any non-combustible liquids such as water and anti-freeze.

JUST A REMINDER

Just a friendly reminder to the property owners in York Township.  It is your responsibility to keep your trees, shrubbery, mailboxes, etc. from protruding past the curb into the street area.  There are many maintenance activities that must occur close to the curb (snow plowing, street sweeping, street paving, trash collection, etc.) which can be impacted by these obstructions.  Overgrown trees and shrubbery can also impact the site distance for the motoring public.  Refer to Ordinance # 2014-5 found on the website for more details.

OBSTRUCTIONS THAT OVERHANG THE ROAD

Please be aware that as property owners in York Township you are responsible to keep your property clear from any obstructions that overhang the edge of the road.  Examples include but are not limited to:  tree limbs, shrubbery, hedges, grassy areas, mailboxes, fencing, etc.  Many activities occur close to the curb with large vehicles that can be impacted when these obstructions exist.  Examples include snow and ice removal, street sweeping, street paving, trash collection, school bus travel, etc.).  Overgrown tree limbs and vegetation also impact the site distance for the motoring public which can be a safety concern.   Refer to Ordinance # 2014-5 found on the website for the specific requirements.

If you observe what would appear to be an emergency with sanitary sewers, roadways, or storm water facilities, please call the Public Works Department from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday at 741-3861 ext.170.  After these hours or on weekends & holidays dial 911.
