Trash and Recycling

2019 Trash & Recycling Brochure

Automated Trash Collection

Waste Management will begin automated trash collection in Upper St. Clair starting the week of April 1, 2019. Residents may begin using their new trash carts immediately. 

If residents have garbage that does not fit into the new trash bin, they may place it next to the bin and the driver will get out of the vehicle to dispose of it.

Residents who find they want a second bin for automated trash may call Waste Management to purchase a new one after the program begins. Waste Management's phone number is 1-800-866-4460.

If residents want to get rid of their old trash cans, they may leave a note on them instructing the Waste Management drivers dispose of them. There is also a dropoff container located in the Municipal Building's parking lot at 1820 McLaughlin Run Road for residents to drop off their old garbage cans.
