Residents will receive one (1) pick-up per week of household garbage in green-wheeled cart, recycles in bins, bagged grass/leaves, and tree limbs/brush on their specified collection day. These items must be kept separate for pick-up by four (4) different trucks and must be at curbside by 7:00am. Residential sanitation service $15.00 per month and is billed on your Water/Sewer Usage bill.

Green-Wheeled carts should be filled with bagged household garbage only (i.e. kitchen, bathroom and/or indoor type wastebasket trash only). All household garbage must be in the cart before it will be picked up. Extra garbage placed on top of or beside the cart will not be picked up since an automated truck does this collection. The cart lid should be closed at all times to prevent trash from blowing around your yard/neighborhood. Do not place anything in your cart that prevents the lid from closing. If an extra cart is needed, one may be leased from Town Hall (500 Poplar View Parkway) and delivered to your home without changing your collection rate. Call 457-2240 for more information.

Recyclables should be placed in the special recycle bin provided by the town. All recyclables will be sorted at the truck when picked-up. You may recycle:

  • CANS: 
    • Metal (tin) food cans, aluminum beverage cans, rinsed.
    • NO oil or paint cans, aerosol cans, pie plates or ovenware.
  • GLASS:

      bottles, etc. Check bottom of bottle for symbol identifying a 1 or 2 inside the symbol.

    • Office paper & Magazines
    • NO envelopes or phone books.
    • Plastic wrapper from newspaper must be removed and disposed of with household garbage.

Grass/leaves/pine needles should be placed in bags weighing no more than 40  pounds per bag and placed along edge of yard at curbside. However, everyone is encouraged to mulch these items. November 1 to March 31 - loose/unbagged leaves will be picked up at the curb by vacuum machine. Pickup will occur on your regular pickup day if scheduling allows based on workload. During peak leaf collection, the collection equipment may be delayed because of the volume of leaves and number of stops required.

LEAVES: During the Fall Collierville has loose leaf pickup.  If you rake or blow your leaves to the curb Collierville will come by and vaccum those leaves for you.  ETHOA will not site you if you place loose leaves at the curb on saturday or Sunday prior to Tuesday collection.  Remember bagged debri must only be placed at the curb on Tuesdays for collection.

Tree limbs/brush should be cut to approximately 10 feet or less and placed separately from all other items on curbside and free of any obstructions (overhead limbs or wires, light posts, mailboxes, fire hydrants, etc.).

Appliance Pick-Ups
Appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, stoves, dish washers, dryers and washing machines will be picked up when placed on your property adjacent to the front property line, but off the street, off the sidewalk, and out of the gutter. Public Services must be notified for a special appliance pick-up of these items at 853-3215.

Extra green-wheeled carts may be ordered at Town Hall and delivered to your home. A $45 non-refundable sanitation-cart fee will be charged for each cart requested. There will be a three cart maximum for all residential customers. Fees are paid at Town Hall offices on 500 Poplar View Parkway and the cart will be scheduled for delivery within three to five days. The use of an extra cart does not change your monthly rate.

Hazardous Chemicals should not be placed inside the green-wheeled cart.
