Spring Brush Collection Begins

Event Date: 
Monday, April 8, 2024 - 7:00am

Spring brush collection service will be offered from April 8 - April 19, 2024.  Residents must contact the Township at 412-784-1784, Ext. 203 during that period to request collection services. Callers should say that they are requesting brush pick-up and be prepared to leave their name, address and telephone number.  Requests are for one pick-up only.  If, after collection, additional material is placed at the curb, another request for collection  must be made.

Requests for pick-up will not be accepted after 4:30 pm on April 19.  However, collection will continue until  brush is collected from all residents who have called in requests.

Residents who do not contact the Township for the Spring collection prior to April 19 will have the opportunity to participate in the monthly collection service provided by Waste Management or the Fall 2024 brush collection program.  Watch for details on these programs in future Newsletters.
