Please read the document concerning our Brush Debris Policy. We are having an over abundance of citizens putting out large piles of brush at one time.
Yard waste and mulchable materials are defined as trimmings from bushes, shrubbery, trees, wooden fencing, boards etc., that are generated during the routine maintenance of a residence. This material is taken to an area mulch contractor to be recycled into useable mulch.
In order to provide timely collections for the entire community, the City will pick-up twelve (12) cubic yards of debris per week from each residence. That is a pile that is approximately thirteen (13) feet long x five (5) feet wide x five feet (5) high.
Yard waste and mulchable materials should be neatly piled behind the curb by 7:00 am on the day of your scheduled collection. All mulchable materials are to be piled separate from other debris and no more than ten (10) feet from the pavement.
Any yard waste or mulchable materials placed out for pick up can be no longer than eight (8) feet or larger than two (2) feet in diameter.
At no time are yard waste and mulchable materials to be placed in the roadway. Items should not be placed under low hanging power, cable or phone lines, in drainage ditches, around fire hydrants, next to utility poles or their support cables, cable or phone boxes, power transformers or mailboxes.
Items that the Solid Waste Division will NOT collect:
- Bricks or concrete blocks
- Household Hazardous Waste (https://shelbycountytn.gov/439/Household-Hazardous-Waste)
