Special Waste Disposal

What to do with Special Waste.

One key to LCSWMA’s success in managing Lancaster County’s waste in an environmentally responsible manner lies with you. We need your help in managing “special wastes” in ways that will not harm disposal facilities or the environment. Because if you understand what special wastes are, and how they should be handled, you are doing your part to protect the environment and our precious resources.

Special waste includes:

  • Large Appliances & Tires
  • Construction/Demolition Waste
  • Asbestos
  • Prescription Drugs
  • In-Home Medical Waste
  • Waste with Mercury

For more information on how to handle these items, visit their website at http://www.lcswma.org/lcswma_special_waste.cfm or click on the link LCSWMA Special Waste Disposal.
