Trash collection routes normally picked up on Thursday and Friday will be delayed one day this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Please remember to set out trash and recycling the night before the collection day as most routes are serviced in the early morning hours. If you have any questions concerning your route or service, please call us at (717) 776-7665.

Pennsylvania Yellow Dot Program

Yellow Dot

Yellow Dot LogoThis program assists citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic crash when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a Yellow Dot decal in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.

The program is a cooperative effort between PennDOT, the state departments of Health and Aging, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, first responders, and local law enforcement.

 How Can Citizens Participate?

Citizens can either stop by the North Newton Township office at 528 Oakville Road, Shippensburg to pick up a Yellow Dot kit, or complete a participation form online to have PennDOT mail them a Yellow Dot kit. Upon receipt, participants should complete the information section, which includes emergency contact information, medical history, medications, allergies, and doctors. A photo (showing only the head and shoulders) is then taped to the appropriate location inside the booklet. The kit should then be placed in the vehicle’s glove compartment. The Yellow Dot decal is placed in the lower left corner of the participant’s rear windshield, no higher than 3 inches from the bottom.

For large quantities, please contact the PennDOT Sales Store at:
ra-penndotsalesstore@pa.gov or 717-787-6746. Due to the large volume of kit requests, please allow a few weeks for delivery. All requests are given priority based on availability of supplies.

  • Styrofoam
  • Rubber hoses or tubing
  • Take Out Food Containers (Styrofoam or plastic)

Cumberland County Electronics Recycling Center is Now Open

 Cumberland County Electronics Recycling Center
Is Now Open

Cumberland County has established an Electronics Recycling Center at 1001 Claremont Road, Carlisle. The cash fee for all accepted electronics is $0.50/pound. There will be a 1.5% convenience fee for debit card users and a 2.5% convenience fee for credit card users. The minimum debit and credit card convenience fee is $2.50. Sorry, checks are not accepted. The fee offsets the County’s costs for collecting, packaging, loading, shipping and recycling electronics and does not generate a profit. Anyone, regardless of place of residence, is able to use the recycling center assuming fees are paid in full.

*PLEASE DO NOT DISASSEMBLE TVS – THEY CANNOT ACCEPT THEM FOR PACKAGING AND TRANSPORTATION REASONS!
