Waste and recycling collection schedule for Memorial Day | Events
FOR RESIDENTS SERVICED BY CITY OF MEMPHIS SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT:
Memphis residents serviced by City of Memphis Solid Waste Management collection crews whose collection day is MONDAY will receive garbage and recycling collection on TUESDAY, JUNE 1st. Excess trash and yard debris collection will be limited while we utilize all crews to service Monday and Tuesday garbage carts and recycling bins.
FOR RESIDENTS SERVICED BY CITY CONTRACTORS ALL STAR WASTE & WASTE CONNECTIONS:
Memphis residents serviced by City contractors, All Star Waste Systems and Waste Connections, will receive garbage and recycling one day later all week. However, there will be no collection of excess trash and yard debris on Saturday (June 5), this week only.
ALL ABOUT CARTS & BINS
• Each single family home serviced by the City is issued one 90 gallon cart and one 18 gallon recycling bin.
• The care and custody of City carts and bins are the homeowners’ responsibility; however, lost or damaged City issued carts will be replaced or repaired by the City.
• However, City of Memphis Solid Waste Management is not responsible for lost or damaged personally owned garbage carts/containers.
• The typical single family home generates approximately 80 gallons of solid waste per week. Therefore, one 90 gallon cart and 18 gallon bin issued by the City should be ample containerization for most Memphis homes.
• To maximize space in your City issued cart please break down all rigid containers and remember recycling saves space too!
• To reduce cart odors bag all food and wet waste before placing in cart. Suggestion: Freeze food waste and place in cart day before collection.
• Clean your cart and recycle bin occasionally using a mild detergent and warm water.
• For new starts and to report cart and bin issues call 576-6851 ext. 3.
Following Memorial Day, the next City observed holiday is Independence Day, which will be observed by the City on Monday July 5th.
