Sewage & Refuse Payments Now Processed In-House; Payment Box Relocated

Brentwood Borough is pleased to announce that, effective January 1, 2022, it will be utilizing internal staff to manage all sewage and refuse payments. By leveraging the hard work of our team, the Borough can reduce its processing expenditures by approximately $10,000 per year while it concurrently refocuses its relationship with its vital partners at Brentwood Bank toward the provision of core services. As part of this transition, the Borough will also be closing its designated post office box. All bills that are submitted via the mail should now be sent to our municipal building, which is located at 3735 Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15227. Customers who utilize an electronic billing portal through their financial institution should promptly update the Borough’s address to ensure that future checks are mailed to the appropriate location. Please additionally note that, as part of this service alteration, the payment drop box has been relocated from the drive-thru lane at our local Brentwood Bank branch to the exterior of the municipal building. Customers who use our convenient online or telephonic payment modules, as well individuals who satisfy invoices via automatic withdrawals from a bank account, will not be affected by these changes.

Household Hazardous Waste Program Formally Commences

 

In order to protect our natural environment from harmful materials, regulations for the collection of refuse have been significantly tightened in recent decades. While these actions are vital from a public health perspective, they also make the disposal of certain common household goods difficult. Although several area nonprofit organizations work admirably to fill this service gap by offering periodic hard-to-recycle collection events, Brentwood recognizes that requiring residents to gather unwanted goods in a basement or garage and then to haul these items to an outlying municipality poses an inconvenience. The Borough additionally acknowledges that a lack of a local disposal option unfortunately encourages some individuals to discard these materials illegally. Beginning August 1st, a curbside solution is arriving in our community. Brentwood has contracted with Waste Management to offer a household hazardous waste collection program to residential customers. This initiative allows for the no cost disposal of automotive products, household chemicals, lawn & garden chemicals, pool chemicals, paint products, and electronics. Note that residents remain prohibited from placing these items at the curb on their regular refuse collection day. Rather, customers will contact Waste Management directly at 800-449-7587 or via www.wmatyourdoor.com to schedule an appointment. For more information, please view the attached flyer
