Ben Avon Leaf Collection

Ben Avon leaf collection will begin in late October and run through the last week in November. Please refrain from putting leaves at the curb until that time.

When raking leaves to the curb, be sure there are NO twigs, branches, mulched material, grass or other debris that can get caught in the machine.

Ohio River Blvd. leaf collection will occur the first week of December.

Once a street has been collected for the last time at the end of November, please do not place any additional leaves at the curbside. You will be responsible for bagging and disposal during regular Wednesday Waste Management collection.

Anyone with questions can contact Dale Regrut, Public Works Foreman, at 412-761-5311.
