- A maximum of ten (10) garbage bags or two (2) trash cans will be collected.
- Cans may not be larger than 33 gallons and must have handles.
- Garbage should be placed into trash bags that are sealed, or garbage cans. Please be mindful of the weight of both cans and bags. Overweight cans and bags may be refused. For example, a garbage bag filled with books and magazines, that has a propensity to rip when lifted, may be refused. Bags or containers over 40 pounds may be refused.
- Most household waste will be collected from your residence. You may occasionally place a larger item, such as a couch, piece of wooden furniture or mattress out with your regular garbage. If it will fit into the truck easily, and can be crushed, we will collect it. No more than two pieces at a time. Certain restrictions apply.
- METAL ITEMS, such as file cabinets, bicycles, metal shelving, and all other metal items are collected once per month on the last working Friday of the month. If you have a metal item you need to dispose of, a special request is required. This service is free to Borough residents. Please use our Garbage Request form to request this special pickup. You can access the form by clicking HERE.
- MULTIPLE ITEM PICKUP service is available to all Borough residents. The Multiple Item Pickup service is to be used, for instance, when you are cleaning out a house or apartment, or have an abnormally large amount of garbage to be collected. There is a fee of $150 for this service. Please use our Garbage Request form to request this service. You can access the form by clicking HERE.
- FREON CONTAINING DEVICES, such as refrigerators, window air conditioners, freezers, dehumidifiers, water coolers and other devices are no longer collected by the Borough of Munhall.
