Refuse/trash bills will be mailed April 27 to Pittston City residents


PITTSTON — The Pittston City 2018-2019 refuse/trash bills will be mailed Friday, April 27, with the payment being due Friday, May 25 (30 days after the issue date.) Residents are asked to take the bill to city hall or mail it.

The blue and white stickers can be used through May 31, but new orange and white stickers must be used beginning June 4.

Those who do not receive a refuse bill in the mail are responsible to notify the city treasurer’s office at 570-654-1090.

All refuse/trash bills are sent to homeowners/landlords. If a tenant is responsible for the trash payment, landlords must give the bill to the tenant so that they bring it or mail it in with their payment.

Cost for 60 stickers is $120. After the initial $120 yearly fee is paid, residents may purchase extra stickers at a minimum of 12 for $24. Additional packs of 60 stickers are also available for $120 each.

A late fee of $20 will be added after July 16.

If mailing a payment, include a $5 postage and handling fee payable to Pittston City. Mail to: Tax Office, 35 Broad St., Pittston, PA 18640. If the stickers are to be sent to an address other than a mailing address, specify to whom and where they should be sent. Otherwise, stickers will be sent to the name and address on the check.
