Environmental Services Home

Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, the City of Pittsburgh will suspend collecting yard debris and any bulky waste to help with staffing. If you place any bagged yard debris and/or bulky items out at the curb, they will be left behind by our crews. If you are looking for resources to dispose of bulky items, please visit this link. We recommend calling the facility beforehand due to the constant changes the waste industry is expereincing during COVID-19. 

The mission of Environmental Services is to establish and maintain a refuse and recycling system that promotes a safe, litter-free and environmentally friendly City for all of its residents and customers.

Environmental Services has two main divisions:

Refuse Division

The role of this division is to collect regular mixed and bulk refuse from approximately 115,200 residential properties with 5 dwelling units or less, the Housing Authority, the Borough of Wilkinsburg and the City government buildings.

Recycling Division

The role of this division is to maintain, monitor and advance waste reduction and recycling activities that are fiscally responsible, environmentally-minded and compliant with state law for all City residents, businesses and organizations.
