Department Manager Gary Wayne Hyde says, "Our goal is to provide excellent service in keeping our city clean. The City of Lawrenceburg Sanitation Department serves both households and businesses with garbage and brush pickup. The department also provides recycling services, working side by side with County officials.
The City collects garbage for about 5,600 residences and 750 businesses every week. Lawrenceburg provides uniform trash cans to all residents and some small commercial establishments. The Department then uses "flipper" garbage trucks to pick up these cans mechanically, providing efficient and cost-effective service.
The City is pleased to announce that the Sanitation Department can now provide residents with rolloff debris service. For information on renting boxes and all charges, please call 766-0900.
The City collects brush from along City properties using trucks with knuckle booms. These lift the brush mechanically so one staff member can drive and operate the truck - reducing labor and risk of injury - while keeping our City neat and clean.
The City will pick up brush, bagged leaves, and grass trimmings placed near the curb. Brush limbs should be stacked with butt ends together. These items are picked up on a regular route system. You may call (931) 766-0900 to see when the brush trucks will be in your neighborhood.
The City of Lawrenceburg encourages all residents to help keep our community clean and preserve natural resources by recycling. Recyclable items can be brought to the Solid Waste Facility at 2126 Baler Drive (entrance located next to Dura off Helton Drive in Lawrenceburg) or to recycling centers at local schools. Recycling bags are available.
Items accepted are:
Residents may also bring motor oil, batteries, tires, and scrap metal to the Solid Waste Facility for recycling.
A commercial shredder is available for safely disposing of documents. Residents or businesspeople may shred documents personally or request that the Sanitation Staff shred items – free of charge.
Call Gary Wayne Hyde at (931) 766-0900 for further recycling information. We recycle because we care. Help us keep our City clean!
The City also picks up commercial refuse five days per week, before residential routes are serviced.
Larger items, such as furniture or appliances, must be brought to the Solid Waste Facility. Remember to remove refrigerants from appliances. If you have questions about garbage collection, please call (931) 766-0900.
