A number of Upper St. Clair residents expressed concern when their Christmas trees weren't picked up by Waste Management this week. They say the collectors have always picked up their trees in the past.
Turns out Waste Management was trying to conserve space in their trucks.
"Thrash collectors are working feverishly throughout the community to gather all the trash for the week as they have battled the weather along with the holiday," said George Kostelich, Upper St. Clair Public Works director. "Christmas trees seem to have been an isolated issue as space was needed in the trucks."
If residents' trash is not picked up by Friday evening, keep out the trash and it should be picked up on Saturday morning, according to Kostelich. Christmas trees will likely be picked up by Waste Management next week if they weren't collected this week.
Other nearby communities, including Peters Township, Mt. Lebanon and Bethel Park, had residents with no trash pickup during the week of Christmas.
