Services

Trash

Back door garbage pickup is provided once a week on Monday or Tuesday, depending on your street location. All solid waste garbage and trash shall be collected from standard containers (any watertight metal or plastic container with handles or bails, having a tight-fitting cover and containing a volume of 32 gallons or under, weighing no more than 50 pounds), no more than three in number, and from recyclable containers, special containers, or special waste receptacles, placed at the back door of residences or at a place designated by the residents that is accessible from the driveway, as long as they are not in an enclosed garage or other building. The City requires trash to be put in BLACK or WHITE bags so as not to confuse it with the recycle waste in BLUE bags. Be sure all waste is inside the cans or it will not be picked up.

Recyclables

Recyclables are picked up on the same day as your trash service. Your recycle container, which can be purchased from the City for $20 a can, must be lined with a BLUE plastic bag – no exceptions! You can put all accepted items, as listed below, in the recycle container together, unbagged, except glass. We are not recycling glass at this time. Please rinse cans before putting them in your container, as some materials may sit in your container for a week. To maximize the use of your container, you will want to break down all large cardboard boxes and set them beside your container. Click here for more details about what to recycle.

  • PAPER – office paper, magazines, junk mail, newspaper, computer paper, notebook paper phone books, paperback books, construction paper, brown paper bags.
  • BOXES – milk or juice cartons (empty), cardboard boxes, food boxes (clean – no food). All large boxes should be broken down and placed by your recycle container.
  • PLASTICS– #1-7: drink bottles and their caps, detergent & cleaner bottles and their caps, yogurt/cottage cheese and other dairy “tubs” and their lids (please empty containers) and plastic trays, such as the lunchable type containers (any color except black trays – optical sorting machines can’t see them).
  • METAL/ALUMINUM CANS – empty food and drink cans, foils and trays.

DO NOT RECYCLE: plastic bags, black plastic trays, clamshells (fast food take out), Styrofoam, paint cans, aerosol cans, egg cartons, glass.

Dumpsters

Household discards such as toys, broken items or items too large to fit inside your weekly trash receptacle may be placed in the three dumpsters located directly behind City Hall. Items such as paint cans, batteries, yard waste, mattresses, electronics, furniture, and construction debris CANNOT be placed in these dumpsters. Please call the Metro East Center off of Trinity Lane 615-862-8631 for more information regarding these items or have a private hauler pick them up.

Brush Collection and Chipper Service

Chipper Service is contracted separately from garbage pick-up and occurs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. The chipper service is designed for pickup of grass, shrubbery, cuttings, tree leaves, small tree branches, bushes, fruits, or any other matter usually created in the care of lawns and gardens. Tree trimmings shall have a trunk not to exceed four (4) inches in diameter, and shall be no more than eight (8) feet in length or six (6) feet across in the lap or crown. Twigs, leaves, small debris, and grass clippings shall be bagged, bag weight not to exceed 50 pounds. If a homeowner has contracted with a tree removal service to cut down large trees on their property, the homeowner is responsible for removal of the tree and related debris. The City chipper service is not set up to provide this service. Your pickup day will depend on which street you live.

Snow & Ice Removal Policy

The Public Works Department has the responsibility for snow and ice removal on City streets. The snow and ice removal is performed by a private service who is under contract with the City. The Public Works Director (PWD) is responsible for direct supervision of the contractor’s crew while they are in the City.

The City reserves the right to modify this snow and ice removal policy at any time or for any storm event depending upon, but not limited to, the weather conditions, intensity/duration of the storm, and accumulation of snow and/or ice.

Please refer comments or questions about the Snow & Ice Removal Policy to:

Larry Smith, Director of Public Works
