Manheim Township Compost Park Available To East Lampeter Township Residents
East Lampeter is excited to announce a renewed partnership with Manheim Township for the use of the compost park effective today. This partnership will allow residents of East Lampeter Township the opportunity to purchase a card at East Lampeter Township to be used at the Manheim Township Compost Park, just like Manheim Township residents. The card can then be shown to the attendant at the compost park and the fee paid for whatever load is being disposed of at the time. Those fees are paid based on the Manheim Township Compost Park fee schedule. Please note that only one card will be issued per address.
Applications can be found at the East Lampeter Township office and cards can be purchased at the East Lampeter Township building for a nominal fee of $5.00 with proof of residency. Proof of residency shall consist of any state or federal identification with an address in East Lampeter Township. Please note that occupants of apartments and commercial uses are not eligible to purchase the card.
East Lampeter Township card holders are responsible for adherence to all Manheim Township Compost Park Rules and Regulations; failure to follow the rules and regulations will result in card deactivation.
