Mt. Lebanon has been on the forefront of recycling best practices for decades. Our curbside recycling program is easy and convenient and our fixed glass recycling centers allow for additional opportunities to help our environment.

Curbside Recycling

Recycling pick-up is every other week on your regular trash pick-up day. Mt. Lebanon offers single-stream recycling, which means that all recyclable materials may be placed together in a container (or containers) identified by recycling stickers.

Recycling stickers are available at the Customer Service Center in the Municipal Building, 710 Washington Road, and at the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, 16 Castle Shannon Boulevard. A recycling container should weigh no more than 50 pounds. All cans, boxes, paper, etc. must be empty and free of food waste.

Accepted Items

Items collected are:

  • Paper: Paperboard boxes (such as those used for cereal, tissues and shoes), copier paper, magazines, newspaper, catalogs, junk mail including envelopes and telephone books. Corrugated cardboard must be flattened and no longer than 36 x 36 inches.  
  • Metal: Aluminum, steel, tin and bimetal cans
  • Plastic: Plastics numbered 1 and 2 on the bottom, except for black PET food trays. To recycle lids, tightly screw them onto original containers.

Items Not Accepted

You may not recycle:

Christmas Tree Recycling

Christmas trees will be picked up curbside for recycling by Waste Management on two Saturdays in January. (Check back for 2024 dates.) All areas of Mt. Lebanon will be picked up on those dates. Please have your tree at the curb the night before either collection date. The contractor has been instructed to leave any trees that are in plastic bags, so please make sure that your tree is not in a bag and does NOT have any decorations or lights on it, including tinsel. These trees will be recycled into wood chips and any foreign material on the tree could potentially damage the equipment.

Permanent glass recycling location

The Glass Recycling Collaborative of Southwestern PA, a newly formed partnership between municipalities in Allegheny County and the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC), provides reliable, uninterrupted glass recycling access.

Individuals can drop off all colors of glass bottles, jars and jugs (no sorting required) at the two sites (see below) established as part of this region-wide glass recycling network.

“For years, CAP Glass and Michael Brothers Hauling & Recycling have served as essential partners with PRC in glass recycling programs in this region, and we are excited see our partnership expand through the collaborative,” according to PRC Deputy Director Sarah Alessio Shea. “To grow the circular economy in Southwestern PA, Michael Brothers will deliver all glass collected in the blue dumpsters to CAP Glass in Mt. Pleasant, Pa. There it will be sorted and prepared for use by regional glass product manufacturers, and a bottle, jar or jug dropped in the bin today could be recycled and back on a store shelf in less than 30 days.” This recycling program, held in partnership with CAP Glass and Michael Brothers, is made possible through a PA DEP recycling grant held by Borough of Dormont.
