Trash Prepayment Program Provides Savings to Residents

Residential property owners have the opportunity to receive twelve months of refuse service for the price of ten. Through February 8, 2022, customers can enroll in our Trash Prepayment Discount Program. This initiative increases our organizational cash flow, while it concurrently saves our residents money. To sign up, please provide, in addition to your January sewage & refuse balance, payment in the amount of $184.50. This figure is equal to the cost of February through October trash service. November and December garbage and recycling removal will subsequently be provided at no cost. Customers who are enrolled in our ACH program and have their payments automatically deducted from a bank account must send a $184.50  check to 3735 Brownsville Road Pittsburgh, PA 15227 in order to receive this discount. As the Trash Prepayment Discount Program is optional, the Borough cannot configure a direct withdrawal of this amount from said account.

Residents May Be Eligible for Federal Relief from Delinquent Water, Sewer Charges

As part of the the recently adopted ARPA legislation, the federal government has disbursed funds to states for the purposes of assisting low income families with addressing delinquent utility bills. Residents who are currently behind on their water payments to Pennsylvania American Water or sewage payments to Brentwood Borough may be eligible for a one-time grant. This program is open to individuals with a maximum annual income of $19,320. For each additional member of the household, the income cap increases by $6,810. To request an eligibility determination or to apply for funds, please contact the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services by phone at 877-395-8930 or online at www.compass.state.pa.us.

Refuse Service Scheduled Modified Due to Storm

Due to the impacts of a significant winter weather event, contracted refuse collection vendor Waste Management has adjusted its schedule for the week of January 16, 2022. Residents who receive Tuesday service may leave their items at the curb, as collection activities will now transpire on Wednesday. Consequently, Wednesday service has been shifted to Thursday and Friday service has been moved to Saturday. It is anticipated that this company will restore its typical schedule next week.
