Waste Management Temporarily Alters Operations to Protect Employees

Due to the effects of the coronavirus, many organizations have been forced to alter their operations. Contracted vendor Waste Management is committed to removing residential trash and recyclables in accordance with the established schedule. However, in order to reduce the risk of employee infection, the company is temporarily suspending the collection of loose items. Until further notice, please adhere to the following

  • Place all refuse in a sealed bag. If you have a trash container, please use it to the greatest extent possible.
  • Bulk waste will not be collected. This category includes items such as furnishings, appliances, and rolled carpets. Please contact the Public Works Department regarding possible disposal options.
  • Yard waste will not be collected. Please contact the Public Works Department regarding possible disposal options.
  • Ensure that all recyclables fit within the confines of a designated bin.
  • Oversized recyclables will not be collected if placed separately next to your container. Cardboard and other packaging material must be broken down so as to fit within your bin.

Waste Management is implementing these restrictions in communities nationwide, and it is anticipated that they will be in place through at least the end of April.

New Year Brings New Refuse Vendor, Major Recycling Changes

Beginning January 1, 2019, the familiar blue trucks of Republic Waste will be replaced by the green fleet of Waste Management. Trash and recycling dates are unchanged, and the monthly fee will remain at $19 per household. In accordance with this new vendor contract, the Borough will be strictly limiting the types of items that can be placed in the recycling bin. Please review our in-depth article here.

Billing Updates Provide Benefits to Customers


Brentwood Borough seeks to provide its residents with a variety of convenient methods for satisfying their sewage and refuse bills.  Beginning in January 2018, the municipality will change its vendor relationship so as to provide a more user friendly customer experience.  Brentwood Bank will assume responsibility for providing lockbox services. Mailed payments will be processed at their local branch. In order for a credit to be applied to your account, please make certain to mail your check, along with the enclosed remittance coupon to P.O. Box 98129, Pittsburgh, PA 15227.  Payments can also be hand delivered to the dropbox that is located in the bank's drive-thru lane. Brentwood Bank tellers are not permitted to handle Borough sewage payments.


Customers who prefer to pay online can utilize the "X-Press Pay" module.  In response to feedback regarding the cumbersome layout of the current "Payer Express" system, Brentwood has chosen to work with a company that offers a clean, easy-to-navigate interface. Additionally, residents will now have the opportunity to schedule automatic deductions from a bank account by returning a simple form to the lockbox address.
