The Memphis and Shelby County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility will be closed Saturday, April 15, 2017, for the Easter holiday weekend.
Beginning April 1st, we will start taking the waste collected in the brown yard waste carts to the landfill. As was the case last year, area mulch contractors no longer accept grass. So, until we find an alternative method for grass disposal, the only available option is to take it to the landfill. To be clear, you can still use your yard waste carts for grass but that waste stream will be taken to the landfill rather than a mulch contractor.
During “loose leaf season”, November 1st through March 31st, with grass no longer a problem, we will resume the practice of taking the brown yard waste carts (typically leaves and limbs) to the mulch sites again. We ask that residents continue to use the yard waste carts for disposal of mulchable waste only.
What We Do
Our Solid Waste Division is one of the most complete and efficient operations in the State. We recycle roughly 40% of the solid waste generated by our residents through a combination of our yard waste collections and drop-off recycling centers.
