Railroad Retaining Wall Rehabilitation

Pennwood Avenue Norfolk Southern has contracted Gregori Construction to undertake substantial rehabilitation of the retaining wall supporting the railroad tracks along Pennwood Avenue.  The project encompasses the entire length of the wall in Edgewood and a portion located in Wilkinsburg.  Work is weather dependent but should continue off and on through the remainder of the year.

Pennwood Avenue will remain open during construction but motorists may experience temporary delays due to the movement of equipment and lane closures.  Please obey all posted signs and flaggers while in the construction zone.

On-street Parking Restrictions Lifted

Overnight 3-5 a.m. on-street parking restrictions have been temporarily lifted by the Mayor.  On-street overnight parking is permitted effective Thursday November 23 until Sunday November 26.  Enforcement resumes at 3 a.m. Monday November 27, 2024. Happy Thanksgiving!

Tennis/Pickleball Courts Closed for Season

The tennis/pickleball courts at Koenig Field are now closed for recreational use for the season. This is done to avoid any possible unsafe play conditions due to seasonal weather impacts on surfaces as well as to minimize damage to the courts. No more reservations will be accepted at this time. Courts will reopen in the spring.

Youth Basketball

This league is for boys and girls in Kindergarten* through Grade 8 (*Kindergarteners should be age 6 as of the start of the season). You do not need to be an Edgewood resident to play. There will be up to 10 kids per team, with no more than 80 kids per Division (the exact number of teams is partially dependent on coach availability and will be determined during the registration process). This is to allow adequate gym time for all teams, and the best experience for all participants. Anyone who still wishes to sign up once we have reached capacity will be wait-listed.  

We will be resuming our draft this year. For those who have not participated in this league, the draft takes place on a Saturday in mid to late December, by age division, and is an opportunity to ensure that teams are evenly matched by skill level. The regular season begins in early January. Practices will take place one weeknight evening each week. Games are held Saturday mornings, according to Division.  

The fee for this league is $65. T-shirts will be provided. Registration opens Monday, October 23 and ends Friday, December 1. Please use this link to register:

We are still looking for volunteers, especially coaches! Basketball experience is not required, we just need good role models role model to help kids stay active and have fun! CLEARANCES ARE REQUIRED.

Fall Leaf Collection

Annual leaf collection starts Monday October 30, 2023. Residents must not place leaves at the curb until this time. Leaves left at the curb for an extended period of time are very difficult to vacuum and slow down the collection process since they soak up water and become compacted from vehicle traffic. Help our public works department by keeping your leaves in your yard until the day before they're scheduled for collection. Doing so ensures that everyone's leaves are collected in a timely manner. Thursday is a catch up day. Public works uses this day to go back over any streets needing extra cleaning or that they couldn’t complete earlier in the week.

Property owners that routinely place piles of leaves in the street days before their scheduled collection day may be subject to enforcement action for creating an unsafe condition. Collection delays and cancellations will be posted on the borough marquis, phone system and our Facebook page and website.

Important Change to Recycling

As of January 1, 2021, Republic Services is no longer accepting any glass with curbside Recycling Collection. Glass has the tendency to break during collection and contaminates other recyclables with fine shards of glass.  Any contaminated items are forced to be rejected, and sent to a landfill. To continue recycling glass items, Republic Services has stationed a large blue dumpster in the parking lot behind the Edgewood Borough Building, 2 Race Street, for items to be dropped off at residents' convenience. This bin is located next to the paper collection bins.  

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please only bring your CLEAN glass recyclables, without lids, to place in the bin.
