Since January 1, 2015, Kreitzer Sanitation has been collecting trash and recyclables in the City of Hazleton.
Household refuse is collected once a week. Garbage may be placed for collection no more than one hour before dark the day preceding your designated collection day. Use plastic or metal trash cans or plastic trash bags. If using plastic trash bags, please make sure they are securely tied or sealed. Please do not put out trash in paper bags, cardboard boxes, or containers smaller than 20 gallons. These can create litter and you could be fined.
Holidays with no pickup are: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (July 4th), Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
PLEASE NOTE: TELEVISIONS, LAPTOP COMPUTERS, DESKTOP COMPUTERS, TABLETS, COMPUTER MONITORS, COMPUTER PERIPHERALS, AND ANY OTHER RELATED ELECTRONICS OR ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS CANNOT BE PICKED UP BY THE CITY'S MUNICIPAL TRASH COLLECTOR. These items must be recycled in accordance with Pennsylvania's Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA, House Bill 708), Act 108 of 2010. Electronic items such as these left curbside will be subject to fines and penalties in accordance with the City of Hazleton's Quality of Life and Littering Ordinances. For more information, click the following link: Pennsylvania's Electronics Reycling Management Program.
Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners & dehumidifiers containing Freon (CFCs) must, by law, have the Freon (CFCs) removed before they can be disposed of. You MUST have the Freon removed by a refrigeration mechanic and a certification sticker put on the itme before putting it out for collection. Most appliance dealers and repair shops can do this. For safety reasons, remove refrigerator and freezer doors before setting them out.
