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.

UPDATE 3/23: Due to heavy snow accumulation on Wednesday, March 21, Wednesday and Thursday trash collection routes were cancelled this week. When multiple days are cancelled, Penn Waste cannot complete all routes by the end of the day Saturday, and by law are not permitted to operate on Sundays. Thus, the schedule changed from a one-day holiday delay back to regular collection for Friday customers, with Penn Waste accepting double the amount of trash allowed for Wednesday and Thursday customers next week.
Street cleaning has been suspended for the remainder of the week. Street cleaning will resume on Monday, March 26.
