City Operations – February 1

January 31, 2021 | Department of Public Works Mayor's Office Solid Waste & Recycling Program


Due to the inclement weather, all Penn Waste routes will be suspended on Monday, February 1. At this time, routes will be operating on a holiday schedule for the remainder of the week. Due to the potential severity of the storm, Penn Waste may need to cancel operations on Tuesday as well. Please check back Monday afternoon for additional updates.


Street sweeping will be suspended only while the snow emergency is in effect. When the snow emergency is lifted, the street sweeping schedule will resume. Utilizing the street sweeping schedule even when snow remains on the ground allows the Department of Public Works to continue to clear travel and parking lanes of snow, especially on non-snow emergency routes.


City offices will be closed to the public on Monday, February 1.


The February City Council Committee virtual meeting will proceed as scheduled on Monday, February 1. For more information, visit www.cityoflancasterpa.com/city-council.

On Monday, February 1, all employees who can work from home should work from home. If you are unable to work from home or have questions, please reach out to your supervisor.
