The answers to most questions can be found on our website – take some time to browse, click on drop-down menus and links.  Current information and notices will normally be posted right on our front page which we refer to as our Borough Bulletin Board.  We encourage you to bookmark that page and visit often.  Our goal is to be as open and transparent as possible, and to keep our residents informed of important happenings in our community.

What is the Municipal Service Fee (Now known as the Trash and Recycling Fee)?
The Municipal Service Fee, now known as the Trash and Recycling Fee, is the brown slip that you will receive in January and July. It was reduced for 2017 and will now be $95 twice per year instead of $125 twice a year.  As the name implies, the fee covers trash and recycling. Checks can be made out to Manheim Borough. Please remember to pay this separately from your water/sewer bill (white bill), and to be sure payment is physically received in the Borough office by the deadline stated on the bill in order to avoid late charges and penalties.

When is trash and recycling picked up, and are there other special pickups throughout the year?
Please visit our trash and recycling page or call into the Borough office at 717-665-2461 for additional information.
