Frequently Asked Questions
Living in Red Lion Borough
I am elderly and not able to do some household tasks such as rake my leaves and clear the snow and/or ice from my sidewalks. How can I find someone to help me with this?
The Rent-A-Kid program, sponsored by the York County Area Agency on Aging (YCAAA), is a unique, intergenerational program bringing senior citizens and teenagers together. York County senior citizens, 60 years of age or older, who need help with household chores, odd jobs, and yard work are matched with a teenager in their area who can assist. The recommended payment is $5.00 per hour, but is negotiable depending upon the job.
Don't wait until the snow is already on the ground or your grass is knee-high! Arrange for help with your chores BEFORE you need it. Call 717-771-9103 or 1-800-632-9073 for information on Rent-A-Kid participants in your area.

If I want to have a yard or garage sale, must I get a permit?
A permit is required for garage and yard sales. The cost of the permit is $10.00 for two consecutive days. Yard sales are not allowed to be held on Sundays. You can have a maximum of 2 such sales per year. Permits are obtained at our office. A maximum of four advertising signs are permitted. Residents must use the signs which are provided by us. These signs may be posted no earlier than 5 days before the first day of the sale and must be removed within 48 hours after the end of the sale. The Borough holds a free Community Yard Sale every June. Check our Calendar for exact dates.

Garbage and Recycling
How can I get another recycling bin?
You can pick up an additional or replacement recycling bin at our office. There is no charge. We suggest that you mark your address on your recycling bin with paint or permanent marker to make it easy to identify if it gets misplaced. You can also use your own container as long as it is clearly marked that it contains RECYCLABLES.
When will my garbage and recycling be collected during a holiday week?
Call Penn Waste, 717-767-4456, or visit their website for holiday trash collection information.
What should I do with my household hazardous waste?
Periodically the York County Solid Waste Authority holds a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day. Visit their website for more information.
