Refuse & Recycling
Guidelines for residential Trash and Recycling collection in Hempfield:
- Trash and recycling must be out the night before your collection day, or prior to 6 AM on the day of collection
- Please bag all trash. Loose trash is a potential health hazard for our employees, is more difficult to collect, and is a major factor in municipal litter. If you are placing loose cardboard out for recycling, please flatten all boxes and stack them neatly next to your recycling can.
- Yard Waste will be collected on your regular collection day along with your trash. Please bag all loose yard waste in biodegradable bags and cut and bundle any limbs or branches into bundles four feet long or less.
- Each residence is allowed one bulk item per week (stove, washer or dryer, refrigerator/window AC unit with the freon removed, couch, etc.)
- If you have more than one bulk item or more than 15 bags of trash, please call Customer Service to schedule a collection. Extra fees may apply.
- There will be 12 Leaf collections throughout the year. They will be advertised when the dates are finalized in the new year.
- More information about the E-Waste and HHW disposal service, provided at no additional cost, can be found by clicking here.

Incorrect Billing Account Information:
If you receive a bill that has the incorrect name or is addressed to "Current Resident",, please login through the portal on our website using the information on the bill and request an account update. Our system is based on the address, not the name however, so you can still pay the bill if it is sent to Current Resident or the previous owner, and the payment will be applied to your residence. We will update your information for the next billing cycle upon receipt of an account update request. Please do not attempt to log in to the portal before you receive your bill, your account will not be activated until you are billed. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Customer Service at 724-929-7694 with any questions you may have.
