Yard Waste and Appliance Collection
Special Seasonal Yard Waste Collection Tips
City will collect your yard waste on the same collection day as your garbage and
recycling. To ensure collection, place proper materials at the curb by 7:00 a.m.
Place your items in separate piles at least 3 feet away from other obstacles such
as mailboxes, utility poles, and automobiles. The City will collect: grass clippings,
leaves, limbs (no longer than 6 feet long or 6 inches in diameter). Please keep
leaves separate from branches and limbs.
- Don't bag it! LEAF it at the curb. Please help us with our collection services by
not bagging any yard debris. Thank you!
- Keep leaves separate from branches and limbs
- Consider Composting! Call 864-467-8300 for more information
- Don't pile leaves or yard debris on water meters, sewer cleanout pipes, or next
to signs, fences or mailboxes
- Don't cause clogs by piling leaves near storm drains, inlets, culverts or ditches
- For safety, in dry weather dampen your piles of leaves with water prior to collection
You can create your own mulch. To learn more about composting and generating your own mulch, see our composting program information.
Free mulch is available at the Twin Chimneys Landfill for give away to individuals, businesses and landscapers. Our mulch consists of ground-up yard waste (i.e. tree limbs, logs, leaves and grass clippings) collected throughout the county.
By using our mulch, citizens help the environment and at the same time help Greenville County hold down landfill space and costs. Mulch is also useful in the garden to conserve water, maintain weed control, and to provide nutrients for plants.
