Special Collections

Under the State Covered Device Recycling Act of 2010, you are prohibited from disposing of electronic devices such as laptops, computers, monitors, microwave ovens and televisions in your trash.  They must now be sent to an electronics recycler.

The York County Solid Waste Authority holds a weekly Residential Electronics Recycling Program.  The program is free and open to York County residents only.  The collections take place at the York County Resource Recovery Center at 2651 Blackbridge Road.  Hours for dropoff are Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Click here for additional information.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb Recycling

The Township is participating in a program sponsored by PPL Electric to recycle compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. This is only for the small fluorescent bulbs, not the long fluorescent tubes. You can recycle your unbroken CFL bulbs by bringing them to the Township Office during normal business hours.

Community Events

Recycling containers will be provided for any community event held at a Windsor Township owned facility for materials included in the Windsor Township recycling program.
