Refuse & Recycling

The Moon Township Municipal Authority handles refuse and recycling for residents through the assistance of a contract hauler. Pertinent information regarding refuse & recycling follows:

The calendar for the 2018 Refuse and Recycling collection can be found here

The pick up of solid waste/recycling will be one day late after holidays observed by waste hauler.  If the holiday falls on a weekend, then the garbage/recycling pickup will follow its normal schedule, it will not be delayed a day.   

Waste Management became the solid-waste contractor for the Authority on August 1, 2014. Their fees are based on last year's bid through the South Hills Area Council of Governments (SHACOG).

Effective April 1, 2015, the Authority added a new service provided by Waste Management for the collection of household electronic and hazardous waste.  Click on the link below for Waste Management's explanation of the program.  Household electronic & hazardous waste.

A customer rate increase is required at this time to cover the increased cost of this new program.  The MTMA Board of Directors has approved a rate of $16.75 per customer per month ($50.25 quarterly) to become effective on April 1, 2015. This is a 50 cent increase over the $16.25 current rate. We hope to maintain this rate through the contract term which ends December 31, 2018.
