Welcome to the City of Lancaster!
A relatively small city of 7 square miles and 60,000 residents, Lancaster City is located within driving distance of Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Delaware beaches and the Jersey shore. But the City of Lancaster is about so much more than our geographic location. Lancaster City is a place where historic preservation and a cutting-edge arts scene live and thrive side by side; a city of neighborhoods that are safe and welcoming; a city that encourages entrepreneurship and investment; a city that values the cultural, ethnic, and diverse lifestyles of our residents and guests.
Residents, business owners and bike and pedestrian advocates are encouraged to come out to the first of several Lancaster Active Transportation Plan public meetings. Participants will learn about the planning process, share their vision for bicycling and walking in Lancaster, offer input regarding specific improvements they would like to see in the community, and provide input on proposed projects such as the Northeast Greenway Trail and the Greater Lancaster Heritage Pathway.
Due to inclement weather, Penn Waste will not be running any city residential trash or recycling routes on Thursday, February 9.

Trash and recycling for Saturday collection should be set out by 2:00 a.m. Contact the Solid Waste Hotline at 291-4744 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
