Get those rakes out! The City of Pittsburgh offers special curbside collection days twice a year to promote environmentally-friendly disposal of your seasonal yard debris. The Yard Debris Collection will take place in our neighborhood on Saturday, November 18. The City will collect the following items curbside:
- Branches (4″ diameter or less)
As you collect your yard debris, keep in mind that all items must be in paper bags weighing less than 35 pounds. Do not use plastic bags. You should bundle all branches with fiber twine or natural rope in lengths of 5 feet or less. Set your items out at the curb at your regular collection spot before 6:00 am on Saturday, November 18. Any yard waste that does not meet the collection guidelines will be left at the curb.
