Lower Swatara Residents,


Effective January 1, 2017, the Township will have a new trash/recycling hauler – Lebanon Farms Disposal. Please see "Waste/Recycing Information" for more details.



New Thing Community, 2285 W. Harrisburg Pike, Middletown, is willing and able to provide overnight shelter for those in need on any night when the temperature is expected to be 40 degrees or below. Arrangements for this shelter can be made by contacting Pastor JoAnn Darrow at 717-512-4657.







Richardson Road will be closed indefinitely starting Monday, April 25, 2016 due to a deficient bridge. The closure will be at the bridge over Laurel Run – Cross streets are Eisenhower Boulevard to the north and Brookside Drive to the south. All addresses will remain accessible up to the bridge but access to those addresses will now only be from a single direction.

Information will be forwarded when the bridge repairs or replacement are completed but this will be a long-term closure.


Effective Immediately - Highland Street in Lower Swatara Township is closed in both directions at the bridge/culvert over Laurel Run. The cross streets are Route 441 to the south and Keckler Road in Swatara Township to the north. The roadway is compromised to the point that it will not safely support vehicles. THIS WILL BE A LONG-TERM CLOSURE. All properties on this road will remain accessible from the north.
