Alternative Yard Waste Disposal: Recycle Your Yard Waste Locally.

Susquehanna Township has contracted with Dig My Earth, LLC to provide composting services for the Township's yard waste material.   Residents can drop off leaves and woody waste free of charge during normal business hours.  The leaves are then recycled through a composting process and sold as a retail product.  Guidelines for acceptable materials, hours of operation, and directions can be found at: digmyearth.com.  Additional information can be found on their flyer or call dig my earth at 717-921-8980.

Leaf Collection

The Susquehanna Township Highway Department collects leaves only. They start at the end of October and end in December. A collection schedule is posted in the fall.
