Garbage Guidelines

South Fayette Township offers curbside trash and recycling to single-family homes and multifamily residential buildings with four or fewer units. Waste collection is is contracted to a third-party company. Fees are paid directly to the waste hauler through the township's general fund.

Helpful Hints
  • One large item per week is accepted curbside, such as furniture, household goods and disassembled children’s swing sets. (Consider donating first!)
  • Carpet should be rolled and tied in lengths not to exceed 4 feet.
  • Empty paint cans and/or dried paint is acceptable. Paint can be air-dried or soaked up with newspaper or kitty litter. The lids should be left off.
