The Street Department operates street-to-street collection throughout the entire city approximately every three weeks unless there is a storm or holiday.
Most residents place their garbage can out at the street the night before their collection day. However, it must be out by 6:30 A.M. on the day of collection.
No, your garbage service is included with your city property tax bill.
No, whichever company serviced your lawn is responsible for removing excess material.
Due to the high cost of service, (i.e. fuel) to provide this service, the City cannot come back until your next scheduled pick up day to get your garbage. Please make sure that your garbage is out to the curb by 6:30 A.M. If you miss your garbage pick up the county landfill has several
convenience sites where you can take your garbage. You can reach the county landfill at (615)446-0019 for information about convenience site locations and hours.
