The City has two automated trucks that operate Tuesday through Friday to collect solid waste. Each household within the City is provided with a 96 gallon trash container that is emptied each week by automated garbage trucks. Residential solid waste collection is provided through property taxes and there is no charge for a single container. If households require an additional container, it is provided at a cost of $52.76 per six months.
Trash should be bagged and placed in containers. Containers should be placed curbside by 6 am the day of pickup, and containers should be removed by 6 pm that same day.
For questions pertaining to residential solid waste collection call the Public Works Department at 931-454-1768.

We have provided example images of garbage carts that will not be emptied. Please be sure that your cart closes and that the garbage is in a bag.
