Residential Garbage Curbside Collection Guidelines

Posted 11-03-17

The City of Sevierville Solid Waste Department strives to always meet the needs of our residential garbage customers. There are many factors that can affect residential collection, such as equipment breakdowns, utility/road work in a neighborhood, and holidays. When these challenges occur, we may need to collect garbage earlier or later than usual so we recommend that customers place their garbage containers at curbside no later than 6AM on your scheduled collection day, or even the night before collection.

Collection guidelines for residents help garbage truck drivers collect waste efficiently and effectively. The driver is the only person on the automated truck, each route includes up to 800 individual collections, and the route must be completed by the end of the driver’s shift. Below is a list of some collection guidelines that we ask customers to follow.
