Solid Waste

Curbside Garbage Collection

You will be furnished with a 95 gallon roll-out cart to use for curbside collection of your household garbage.

  • Position your cart at the curb in front of your residence no later than 7:00 am on the day of pick-up.
  • Your cart must be within five (5) feet of the road and at least (3) feet from obstacles (mailbox, fence, landscaping, cars, other bins, etc.)
  • Do not place cart under any low hanging overhead obstacles like limbs or power lines.
  • Carts are emptied by an automated side loader that is operated by the driver. Drivers will not exit the truck to adjust your cart if improperly placed.
  • All trash in the container must be drained of all liquids and bagged in paper or plastic bags.
  • All carts must have the lids closed, with no trash protruding from the top, for pick-up. Garbage will not be collected if it is not inside the roll-out cart with the lid closed or in a special pre-paid “overflow” 30-gallon bag.
  • Bags may be purchased from local grocery stores such as Harris Teeter and Publix.
