York County Solid Waste Authority opens new recycling drop-off center


The York County Solid Waste Authority has opened it new recycling drop-off center as part of a major improvement project at the facility in Manchester Township.

The new center at 2685 Blackthorne Court opened Monday. There are signs in the area directing users to the new location, according to a news release. Roughly 600 tons of material are recycled via the drop-off center annually.
