  • Refuse Billing: Effective July 2016, Brentwood will be introducing a new combined sewage and refuse statement.  Customers will no longer receive a separate quarterly invoice but will instead be issued a single monthly bill. Republic Services remains under contract to provide residential trash and recycling collection.

     

    Roadway & Sidewalk Projects: Pursuant to the approved five-year street improvement plan, the Borough is scheduled to rehabilitate sections of Shadyway Drive, Villawood Avenue, Kingsley Street, Pointview Road, and several alleys. Brentwood will also continue its successful shared cost sidewalk restoration program by making necessary repairs on the streets that are targeted for roadway upgrades, as well as along our heavily traveled Brownsville Road corridor.

     

    Zoning Ordinance: Council has formally adopted the Route 51 Streetscape Enhancement Overlay. This new section of the code is designed to improve the aesthetics and the accessibility of this vital commercial district. 

     

    Recreational Programming: Brentwood Borough is pleased to offer an array of interesting and exciting programs for both children and adults. Click here for more information!

Convenient New Combined Sewage and Refuse Bills Coming This July

 

In response to a 2015 policy change by incumbent trash contractor Republic Services, the Borough of Brentwood is preparing to internally generate refuse invoices for its residential service customers. This firm no long collects delinquent balances that are in excess of 90 days past due; rather, these amounts are currently directly satisfied by the Borough at significant expense. Brentwood recognizes that it is inequitable to require residents who promptly respond to their bills to pick up the tab for those individuals who have failed to make the required payment. The Borough had previously outlined its intention to rectify this deficiency by issuing separate delinquency notices to complement the quarterly statements provided by Republic Services. However, upon further investigation of this proposal, it was noted that this arrangement would both be confusing to our residents and administratively cumbersome. As a result, Brentwood has chosen to streamline the payment process for these critical services by producing a bill that combines both sewage and refuse fees.

 

The issuance of a single monthly statement will allow residents to save time and postage by writing a single check. The switch from quarterly trash bills is additionally beneficial to customers who are on a budget, as it divides refuse charges into smaller, more manageable payments. The new system additionally eliminates “free riders,” as the Borough will now automatically apply refuse fees to any active residential sewage account.

 

Please note that future delinquent balances will be subject to a penalty of $5 if the account is more than one month past due; an additional $10 surcharge will be applied if the balance is more than three months in arrears. If you believe that there is a delinquent amount associated with your account, contact the Borough today at 412-884-1500 x115 or x118 so as to avoid the imposition of these charges.
