Another Way to Protect our Rivers and Streams

Did you know that anything that goes into a catch basin or storm inlet on the street eventually ends up in a stream or river?  You can help protect our water resources by reporting any activity that could cause pollution of our waterways.  If you see someone dumping anything into a storm inlet or even just dumping something on the street such as oil or auto fluids, litter, paint, grass clippings, hazardous waste or cleaning fluids, you can report this to the Homestead municipal office at 412-461-1340.  Please get as much information as possible including a photo, the location and time and other pertinent information.

Together we can all protect water, our most valuable resource. 

Electronic Recycling Required in PA

By law, Allied Waste, the garbage collector for Homestead Borough, can no longer take televisions, laptops, computers, printers or other electronic computer and/or audio-visual items as part of the Pennsylvania Covered Device Recycling Act. It is against the law for these items to be thrown out with your trash and for us to take them. They must now be recycled and can be dropped off at a designated collection point.  Below is a collection site, but you will need to call for more information.

eLoop, LLC (E)
625 Plum Industrial Court, Pittsburgh
724-519-7646
