Here’s how Pittsburgh residents can dispose of bagged yard waste
Pittsburgh residents can dispose of old grass, leaves and branches May 4 by bagging the debris and placing it at curbside.
The city’s Environmental Services Department will pick up the bags and branches that are bundled in lengths of 5 feet or less with fiber or rope twine.
The material must be placed at the curb before 6 a.m.
Leaves, brush, and grass should be placed in paper bags with a weight limit of 35 pounds per bag. Branches (4 inch diameter or less) should be bundled with fiber twine or natural rope in branch lengths of 5 feet or less.
City workers will not take plastic bags, metal, wire, rocks, blocks, bricks, dirt, gravel, glass, metal or plastic. Bags containing that type of material will be left behind.
Residents with questions can phone environmental services at 412-255-2773 or 412-255-2631.
