The City of Pittsburgh offers special curbside collection days twice a year to promote environmentally-friendly disposal of your seasonal yard debris. 
 
Please check your collection calendar at http://apps.pittsburghpa.gov/dpw/CE_Map_and_Calendar.pdf 
 
or visit PGH.ST to schedule reminders for upcoming dates. 
 
We will collect the following items curbside:
  • Leaves
  • Branches (4" diameter or less)
  • Brush
  • Grass
 
Yard waste that does not meet the collection guidelines will be left at the curb.
This month instead of the regular meeting they're organizing two tree care days in Oakland; one will be in South Oakland and the other in West Oakland. They're still finalizing the dates/times with Tree Pittsburgh but stay tuned so you can come out and work side-by-side with your neighbors to keep our trees healthy. 
 
There is no technical expertise involved; it’s weeding, and mulching for the most part. If there is any pruning that needs to be done, that will be flagged for trained individuals.
