Penn Hills announces leaf pick up schedule, rules for program
Penn Hills crews will start collecting leaf and yard waste in November to kick off the year’s fall program.
Residents are encouraged to place paper leaf bags at the curb the night before scheduled leaf pickups on Nov. 5, 12, 19 and 26.
A bag will be left behind if it weighs more than 30 pounds, according to the municipality’s website.
Acceptable material includes leaves, garden residue, shrubbery and tree trimmings that don’t exceed a half-inch in diameter.
Unacceptable material includes roots, grass, dirt, stones, plastic and boxes.
Yard waste also can be dropped off at the municipality’s compost site throughout the year, though residents are encouraged to make an appointment with the public works department.
Call 412-798-2151 for an appointment or for additional information.
