Township Brush Collection

Requests for the Township's Spring Brush Collection will be accepted from April 17 to April 28, 2017. Requests for collection will not be accepted after 4:30 pm on April 28. However, collection will continue until brush is collected from all residents who have called in requests. Brush will not be collected from homes not on the list.

Residents should call 412-784-1784, ext. 203 to request collection and be prepared to leave their name, address and telephone number. Requests are for one pick-up only. If additional material is placed at the curb after collection, another request for collection must be made.
