Every other week, recyclables are collected at the curb with trash. Morningside is one of the neighborhoods piloting Pittsburgh’s more complete curbside recycling program. For residents who wish to dispose of their recyclables more often, two drop-off locations are located within a 10-minute drive.

Most parking is street parking, though some homes have driveways and garages. Parking in Morningside does not require a parking permit as in many other Pittsburgh communities, probably because street parking is not terribly difficult to come by. From April through November, most streets in Morningside are cleaned by city crews, so once a week residents have to shuffle their cars around.
