What We Do
The Solid Waste and Recycling Bureau manages the City’s Single Hauler Solid Waste and Recycling Services. The Bureau is responsible for ensuring solid waste and recycling collections for more than 18 thousand residential units throughout the City. The Bureau is also responsible for providing public education and outreach to private citizens and organizations, public schools, and neighborhood associations. In addition, the Program partners with other bureaus within Public Works to secure recycling grant monies from the Commonwealth of PA that allow the City to expand its recycling efforts and to provide additional innovative recycling services.
