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 2014 Refuse and Recycling collection can be found here

The calendar for the 2015 Refuse and Recycling collection can be found here

HOLIDAY WEEK SOLID WASTE/RECYCLING COLLECTION SCHEDULE
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 August 1, 2014. Their fees are based on last year's bid through the South Hills Area Council of Governments (SHACOG).

The agreement with Waste Management continues through December 31, 2018. A customer rate increase is required at this time to cover the increase in refuse and recycling collection and processing costs.

The MTMA Board of Directors at its August 2014 meeting approved a rate of $16.25 per customer per month ($48.75 quarterly) to become effective on October 1, 2014. This is a 25 cent increase over the $16.00 current rate. We hope to maintain this rate through the contract term which ends December 31, 2018.
