Monday February 22nd, 2021 – Due to the inclement weather, Penn Waste residential routes are now cancelled for the remainder of the day. This is for the safety of our employees and others that may need to be on the roads. For any areas that were not collected today, we will be collecting these areas tomorrow, Tuesday February 23rd.
We will attempt to get caught up on collections through the remainder of the week. Please place your waste and recycling curbside on your normal collection day for the rest of the week as our crews will be doing their best to get caught up each day.
Thank you for you for your patience and understanding during these weather events.
Friday, February 19, 2021 – Due to inclement weather and road conditions, Penn Waste Residential Routes are now cancelled for Friday. We are no longer operating on a holiday schedule for the remainder of the week. Due to this cancellation, we will collect double the allowed limit for any Thursday and Friday customers on your next regularly scheduled collection day. The safety of our employees is our top priority.
Due to the forecasted winter weather for tomorrow, Penn Waste routes will not be operating on Thursday, February 18th, 2021. We will continue to monitor the weather tomorrow and update all customers on our operational plans for Friday, February 19th.
At this point, we will plan on operating on a holiday schedule for the remainder of the week:
– Thursday customers will be collected on Friday the 19th.
– Friday customers will be collected on Saturday the 20th.
If you have any appliances with freon in them, please contact us via 717-767-4456 to schedule a special pick-up. Some examples of appliances with freon are: refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, air conditioners and water coolers.
Dark trash bags are strongly encouraged if you do not have a trash container or mobile cart. White trash bags are hard to see if placed in the snow. If you do use white trash bags, please make sure they’re placed on a shoveled surface that is visible from the road. We appreciate your help!
Plastic bags get wrapped around our recycling equipment and jam up the machinery. Our employees must climb into the machinery to manually remove the plastic bags that get wrapped around the equipment. For this reason, please do not place plastic bags in your curbside recycling bins!
