Pittsburg is a city with deep industrial roots located in eastern Contra Costa County, California, in the eastern part of the San Francisco Bay Area. The population was 63,264 at the 2010 census. Once a major staging area for the U.S. army during the Korean War and WWII, the town got its start when Colonel Jonathan D. Stevenson bought the former Rancho Los Medanos land grant and set out a plan to develop the area into what he termed the "New York of the Pacific". The discovery of coal in the neighboring town of Nortonville, led to the town becoming a port for coaling, hence the start of its industrial operations. The town fronts the Sacramento River Delta, which helped it thrive as a commercial port, and as a nod to the company that built its first railroad and the town of Pittsburgh, PA, the residents decided upon the name of Pittsburg (sans "h") in 1911.
The City of Pittsburg really wants to reduce its carbon footprint! Residents of the city are invited to "rethink how we recycle". Citizens can learn how to compost, deal with e-waste and hazardous household waste (HHW), stop junk mail, and recycle used motor oil and filters, on the city's site for garbage and recycling information. Recently, the City of Pittsburg and Pittsburg Disposal Service announced a new expansion of residential collection service for residents, so before you throw anything in the trash, read their guidelines about what can be recycled, first.
