PITTSBURGH, PA (May 4, 2020) Environmental Services crews from the Department of Public Works will be picking up yard debris at curbsides across the city on Saturday, May 16. Additionally, yard waste drop-offs will resume at three DPW locations beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5.
Curbside yard debris set for earlier this spring was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The resumption of pickup was first announced last week with other outside work by City of Pittsburgh personnel.
Information about yard waste disposal is available here.
City crews will collect the following items curbside on May 16:
Items must be in paper bags weighing less than 35 pounds. (No plastic bags permitted.) All branches must be bundled with fiber twine or natural rope in lengths of 5 feet or less. Items should be left at regular curbside collection spots before 6:00 a.m. on the morning of the collection day.
Yard waste that does not meet the collection guidelines will be left at the curb.
