All collections (garbage, recycling and moderate amounts of yard waste) are made on your assigned day. On collection day, please have your 90 gallon garbage cart and 18 gallon recycling bin at the curb by 7:00 a.m. and remove from the curb by 7:30 p.m. that day. Also, to maintain the beauty of Memphis and your neighborhood, please do not put items at the curb before your assigned collection day. If you do not know your collection day, call 576-6851 ext. 1 Sign up for Solid Waste Management Email News.
EXCESSIVE amounts of trash and yard waste may require special scheduling and or special collection equipment, therefore delaying pickup beyond the regular collection day. Also, waste material generated by contractors hired by homeowner/occupant, such as construction debris and/or yard waste must be removed by the contractor and/or homeowner. Said material will not be collected by the City (see City Code of Ordinances (searchable).)
HOLIDAYS: Please see Holiday Schedule for current holiday information.
