How do I get a recycling bin?

Every eligible residence receives one 64-gallon recycling cart for free. The bin stays with the home if you move. It is green with a yellow lid and has the SF township logo on it.

Early 2024:

  • Please call the township office at 412-221-8700 for information about how to receive an initial recycling cart if you are moving into a newly built home.
  • Additional / second recycling carts will not be available until later in the year.

Once additional recycling carts are available in 2024:

  • If you need to purchase an additional recycling cart, you will need to pay an annual fee to WM (Waste Management), which is $93 in 2024 and will increase 7% increase each additional year. The additional cart will have the WM logo (not SF). This fee pays for the additional service.
  • To order an additional cart, call WM at 1-800-866-4460 and say “SERVICE CHANGE” to the phone system prompt. You will be directed to an agent to place your order and pay for your cart.

Please note some areas of the Hunting Ridge neighborhood must use a different type of recycling bin.
