When is my recycling picked up?

Recycling collection in South Fayette Township occurs every other Thursday (every two weeks). Please place bins at the curb the night before, or before 6 a.m. Thursday morning, and remove promptly after emptied. Please note that on recycling days, pickup times may vary, and there is no guarantee your recycling will be picked up at the same time each collection.


If a Waste Management scheduled holiday falls during the week (Monday-Friday) and your scheduled pickup is on or after the holiday, pickup will be 1 day later for the remainder of the week. If a holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, there will be no change in service. Waste Management observes six holidays:

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
