Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic and Federal and State Declarations of Emergency, Waste Management has modified garbage and recycling service beginning Tuesday March 24th.

Garbage and refuse will only be collected if contained in a closed bag, and whenever possible placed in trash cans. No bulk items such as furniture, mattresses, appliances, yard waste or any other loose item will be collected.

Recycling will only be collected if it is contained in a designated recycling container. Recycling materials must not be bagged. No loose items such as a stack of cardboard boxes will be collected.

We do not know when normal service will be restored. The Township of Moon leadership team will remain in communication with Waste Management and we will let you know when loose and bulk items will again be picked up.

Police

Effective immediately and until further notice, the Moon Township Police Department is modifying its operations to protect our residents and police staff as a response to the current COVID-19 outbreak.

1. For emergency calls where a person’s personal safety or property are immediately endangered, please continue to call 412-262-5000 or 911 right away. Officers will continue to promptly respond to the scene in a manner appropriate to the emergency.

2. Reports of previous crimes, suspicious behaviors (not currently occurring), information requests, general complaints and similar needs, please call 412-262-5000 or 911. The dispatcher will provide details to an officer who will screen the call to determine the appropriate response. For circumstances that may not require a face-to-face interaction, an officer will call the complainant by phone to see if the request for police assistance or information can be handled over the phone.

3. Walk-in complaints at the police station are discouraged except for emergency situations. Complainants should evaluate if there is another way of communicating with the Moon Police personnel besides in person at the police station. If complainants stop at the police station in person, they will not be permitted past our lobby area and will communicate with our dispatch staff though the window area. An officer will then determine whether they will interact with the complainant through the window, or in the lobby area. At the officer’s discretion, the complainant may be invited into the police station depending upon the circumstances.

4. To request a copy of a police report, please call 412-262-5000 between the hours of 7 am and 3 pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, between 7 am and 6 pm on Wednesday, and between 7 am and 11 am on Friday.

5. We will continue to process Pennsylvania State Reportable Crash Reports for insurance companies via US mail upon receipt of the mandated fee. Individual citizen requests are discouraged, as they would require in person visits and insurance companies are responsible for collecting these reports for their clients.

6. Fingerprinting services, child safety seat installations, and police department tours are suspended indefinitely. If you need to be fingerprinted, find an authorized “IdentoGo” location at https://www.identogo.com/ .

Be aware, for the safety of both the public and department personnel, we may implement further modifications.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and cooperation. As always, we will do our best to serve and protect every member of our community during this unusual and difficult time.
