Yard Waste Collection
The City of Greenwood does collect yard waste disposed by City residents. The City will collect: grass clippings, leaves, and limbs. Place your items in separate piles at least 3 feet away from other obstacles such as mailboxes, utility poles, and automobiles. Limbs should be separated from leaves. Yard waste should NOT be placed in the street, gutter, ditch, sidewalk, nor on properties other than the premises of the depositor. PLEASE NOTE - All yard waste, trash, refuse or debris resulting from building, repairing, remodeling, or any kind of construction shall be moved by the landscaping contractor, owner of the property, or person having done the work.
Seasonal Yard Waste Collection
Residents are welcome to either bag their leaves or deposit them at the street/curb. The City of Greenwood will issue up to 25 plastic leaf bags during the fall for an individual property owner. The City of Greenwood uses a vacuum system to remove leaves from the right-of-way. Please help us with our leaf collection services by separating leaves from branches and limbs. DO NOT mix garbage waste with environmental materials.
The City of Greenwood provides a utility trailer for large home clean-up projects for environmental waste (leafs, limbs, and other similar debris) completed by the homeowner at no charge. Only City of Greenwood solid waste customers will be eligible to use the utility trailers. A private landscaping contractor is required to remove all environmental debris cleaned during a contracted job. The use of a utility trailer must be scheduled by calling (864) 942-8420.
Bulk Waste and “White Good” Removal
The City of Greenwood provides a collection route for these items. It is estimated that this route collects in each City neighborhood approximately every two weeks. Bulk waste includes items such as furniture, carpeting, small appliances, large toys, mattresses, box springs or other large items that do not fit into your garbage cart. White goods are defined as large metal appliances such as washers, dryers, stoves, refrigerators and hot water heaters. We cannot accept compressed gas containers such as propane tanks or bottles. We will not accept any fluid liquid container such as gas, oil cans/drums, or paint. For the safety of children, please remove all doors before placing items at curb. If you are placing a large amount of material on the street, please contact the City of Greenwood at (864) 942-8420 or fill-out an online request for services here to schedule a pick-up.
