On June 10Th 2008 the City of Pittsburgh will hold it's first shared services day at the IBEW Hall in the Southside section of the city. The shared services day will bring together representatives of the counties 129 boroughs and municipalities in an effort to explore possible cost savings achieved through the sharing of services. Much like the Sharing of Waste removal in Wilkinsburg. The success of the Wilkinsburg trash removal has led to this event. Pittsburgh is not alone in sharing services, some of the northern municipalities have combined police forces, and other borough's and municipalities have expressed interest in sharing services with the city.
