The City of Lancaster is on a mission to create a better tomorrow, and we want to do that together. Engaging members of our community to participate in maintaining the appearance of our City is just one small step in fostering community pride.

There are over 1,400 lane miles of roadway in the City of Lancaster. Unfortunately, every day, people carelessly litter roadways and the wind isn't our friend blowing tumbleweeds and trash into our landscape. Additionally, large bulky items such as tires and old furniture are also purposely dumped by the side of the road.
