Yard Waste & Appliance

Seasonal Collections


The City will collect your yard waste on the same collection day as your garbage and recycling. To ensure collection, place materials at the curb by 7 a.m. Please place items in separate piles at least three feet away from obstacles such as mailboxes, utility poles, and automobiles.

The City will collect: grass clippings, leaves and limbs (no longer than 6 feet long or 6 inches in diameter). Please keep leaves separate from branches and limbs.
  • Consider Composting. Call 864-467-8300 for more information.
  • Do not bag yard debris. Leaf it at the curb.
  • Do not cause clogs by piling leaves near storm drains, inlets, culverts or ditches.
  • Do not pile leaves or yard debris on water meters, sewer clean-out pipes, or next to signs, fences or mailboxes.
  • In dry weather dampen your piles of leaves with water prior to collection.
  • Keep leaves separate from branches and limbs.
