Well atleast we know now! When we get 1" of snow we will have no garbage/recycle pick up. Well I guess the salt trucks can't salt our streets we can't expect the trash to get picked up. Funny how the city cleared end of Voelkel among the other streets and Dormont Hasn't salted. If they have its not anywhere where I live. Right by the Mayor!!

Poor job cleaning the streets. I saw one salt truck/plow on Wednesday and that was early in the morning. Glad to see our tax dollars at work.

I drove home from work in mid-afternoon on Wednesday through parts of Pittsburgh, Greentree and Bridgeville, never saw a plow or a street that had seen a plow until I got to Dormont. Dormont service seemed to be better than any I drove through. It was a relief to get to W. Liberty Ave. Thanks Dormont streets dept.
