Recycling

City of Beaver Falls contracts Valley Waste Services, Inc. for garbage and recycling collection. If you have questions or concerns about collection services please call Valley Waste Services, Inc.


Recyclables must be kept separate from garbage and should be placed in the RED 32 gallon containers provided by the City.

Recycling containers should be placed at the curb or a point not more than five feet (5 ft.) from the curb or, where there is no curb, the edge of the traveled roadway, in an unobstructed are that is clearly visible to the collector.

RED recycling containers can be obtained by calling the City Street Department, (724) 843-7191. If City recycling containers are currently not available, you can use your own container by marking it RECYCLING  in large white letters.

Recyclables are collected the SAME day as your garbage pick-up EVERY TWO (2) WEEKS with your regular garbage pick up.
