Trash and Recycling Collection
Residential service is provided once a week on your designated day of
collection. If you need to know your collection day, we have provided a zone
collection map on this web site. You can contact customer service at
864-467-4345 for further assistance. Please place all household garbage and
other miscellaneous trash inside your cart.
Curbside carts should be placed within two feet of the curb, and at least three
feet away from obstructions such as mailboxes, telephone poles, parked cars, recycling
bins, fences, piles of yard waste or bulky items placed out for collection. When
you place your cart at the curb, be sure the handle of the cart faces AWAY FROM
the street. Place your curbside cart, recycling bin, yard waste and bulk items at
the curb for collection by 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection. Yard waste must be
placed at the street for collection, and must be separated from other materials
such as bulk waste and other household items. After collection, the empty carts
and bins must be removed from the street as soon as possible. Remember - it is both
unsightly and a violation of City ordinance to leave these containers out on days
other than normal collection days.
