MEDALLIONS The Historical Society of Mount Lebanon is planning to sell medallions that can be mounted near the front doors of houses, identifying those properties as contributing to  our National Register Historic District. The medallions, designed by architect Ben Wetmore of the historic preservation board,  will be made from cast aluminum, six inches in diameter and will include hardware needed to install them.  For details including the cost of the medallion, visit


TREE PICKUP Ready to take the tree down? Republic Services will pick up trees at curbside on Saturday, January 9 and Saturday, January 16. Please have your tree at the curb the night before either collection date.  Because the trees are going straight into the chipper, they need to be stripped of all lights, tinsel and other decorations, and cannot be in plastic bags.

You can also drop your tree off at the Public Works facility for recycling during this period.  An area will be designated with a sign for this purpose.

Finally, you can put you tree out with with your trash for regular pickup.
