Expert Appraisers to Visit Brentwood to Evaluate Family Heirlooms

 

Are you interested in discovering if that hand-me-down has more than just a sentimental value? Find out if that unusual article gathering dust in your basement or attic is one of Pittsburgh's hidden treasures! On September 8th, residents are invited to meet with a team of experienced appraisers to learn the fair market price of their antiques or collectables. The event, which is hosted by the Brentwood Historical Society, will take place from 10AM to 1PM at the Brentwood Library. The review fee is set at $5 per item or $12 for three items.

Deadline Approaching to Purchase Tickets for Community Baseball Event

 

“Clear the deck, cannonball comin’!” Local residents are invited to join friends, family, and coworkers to experience an exciting night of America’s pastime. For the 13th consecutive season, the Brentwood Business Owners Association will host a community night at PNC Park. For just $29, guests can enjoy a pregame tailgate party, receive $5 in stadium concessions, and witness a June 12th matchup between our hometown Buccos and the Colorado Rockies. Fees include bus transportation to the event. Individuals providing their own transportation can purchase packages for $24. Interested residents must submit the attached form by May 12th.

Recycling & Disposal Events Announced

The draconian horrors of federal tax season are behind us! Residents are invited to securely dispose of unneeded financial documents at the Brentwood Business Owners Association’s popular “Shred-It Day” event. This free service is available from 9AM to noon on April 29th in the Brentwood Middle-High School parking lot.

 

Are other hard-to-recycle items cluttering your garage or basement? Two programs operated by the nonprofit Pennsylvania Resources Council may help to clear up valuable space. This organization invites residents to drop off household chemicals, including aerosols, automotive fluids, paints, pesticides, and similar products at a cost of $3 per gallon. These cash only events will take place from 9AM to 1PM on May 6th at North Park, on August 19th at Boyce Park, and on September 16th at South Park. Recent changes to state law have also drastically reduced the number of vendors that will accept electronic waste. PRC will collect televisions, computers, cellphones and other items for a fee on five separate dates, including at an August 20th event at Century III Mall.
