Please note: Waste Management no longer will accept television sets with the garbage collection. Please consider recycling your unwanted televisions, as well as other electronics and mixed appliances during Green Tree's special Electronics Recycling weekends.

Refuse pick-up can include furniture, appliances, plumbing fixtures and accessories, newsprint and other trash, scrap, litter, debris, household equipment such as stoves, refrigerators, water heaters and furnace pipes, broken glass, bottles, crockery, tin cans, waste and refuse normally generated from a household or public building, lawn and yard debris, such as lawn clippings, weeds, leaves, twigs, vines, clippings from shrubs and hedges, garden plants, tree branches not exceeding 36 inches when cut, building materials smaller than 3'x2'x2'.
Some restrictions apply when disposing building materials. Please contact the Borough Office at 412-921-1110 for specifics and additional information.
Disposal of large appliances require that doors are removed from them for safety reasons. Refrigerators and air conditioners MUST have the freon removed prior to placing it at the curb. An appropriate sticker indicating that the freon has been removed must be prominently displayed on the refrigerator or air conditioner or it will not be collected.
If you are unsure whether an item can be placed at the curb for collection, please call the Administrative Office 412-921-1110 or email us.
