Reduction (also Flynns) is an unincorporated community in South Huntingdon Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. United States.[1] The community is located on the Youghiogheny River. Its population is 60, down from a peak of 400.[2]


American Reduction Company, a garbage processing company, founded the community to provide housing for its workers at a local garbage plant. The plant closed in 1936, and in 1948, John Stawovy bought the town for $10,000. Their son David put the community up for sale again in 2017.[2]
