U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh is closed tomorrow and trash collection in the city is postponed because of anticipated extreme frigid temperatures.
Mayor Bill Peduto cancelled garbage collection and said residents should put their trash out one day later than normal with Friday’s trash scheduled for collection on Saturday. The mayor also ordered five warming centers to be open for extended hours on Tuesday and Wednesday.
“Temperatures tomorrow will again be potentially hazardous and we all must take precautions to make sure our friends and neighbors are safe,” Mr. Peduto said in a news release.
These centers will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. for residents who need a warm place to stay:
• Greenfield, 745 Greenfield Ave.
• Homewood, 7321 Frankstown Ave.
• North Side, Allegheny Center, Allegheny Square.
• Sheraden, 720 Sherwood Ave.
• South Side, 12th and Bingham streets.
Normal federal court business is expected to resume Wednesday.
As of this time, federal courts in Johnstown and Erie have not opted to close.
