Sanitation Services

Each household within the city limits is provided a 96-gallon container that is emptied each week by automated garbage trucks. The city has two automated trucks that operate Monday through Friday to collect solid waste. Trash should be bagged and in the container with the lid closed. If the household requires an additional container, it is provided at the cost of $50.00 non-refundable and a monthly increase of $8.93 to your bill. Containers should be placed curbside by 7:00 am the day of pickup. The container should not be set within 4 feet of anything (mailboxes, electric poles, vehicles, etc.) 

For questions pertaining to residential solid waste collection phone 931.473.2553.

These are examples of garbage that will not be emptied. Please be sure that your cart closes and that the garbage is in a bag.
