Garbage and recycling collection will not take place for the rest of this week, due to the demand on our DPW to remove the massive amount of snow. Collection will resume on the normal schedule next week. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to dig out.

No Garbage or Recycling Collection Tuesday March 14th Due to Winter Storm; Street Department Issues Travel & Parking Advisories

Due to the impending winter storm, the Pittston City Streets & Sanitation Department announces all garbage & recycling collection scheduled for Tuesday March 14th is cancelled. Weather permitting, the garbage and recycling scheduled for Tuesday collection will be collected Wednesday.  Further updates on changes to the collection schedule will be given after the storm.

Additionally, to the extent possible, the Street Department requests that if you can move your parked vehicles off the street, please do so to facilitate plowing.   Additionally, residents are advised to not travel during the storm or immediately after unless it is absolutely necessary.  Please stay clear of all working snowplows & other snow removal equipment. The Pittston City Street Department thanks you for your cooperation! Stay safe!
