Once your receptacle has been delivered,  you still have options to suit your needs.

  • If you find the 95-gallon receptacle is too small for your needs, you may call Best Way Disposal to have an additional 64-gallon cart delivered to you at no charge.

Please remember all trash must go inside the provided cart. Heavy trash days will still follow the same rules.

Trash Routes

Leaf Pickup

Curbside Pickup Dates: October 23 - December 1, 2018

The City of Greenwood is proud to provide comprehensive seasonal leaf removal services. To ensure removal of leaves happens efficiently and effectively, please consider the following guidelines:

  • Residents must rake leaves to the edge of the curb or yard for proper pickup.
  • Please do not put leaf piles in the street as this will cause stormwater drainage problems.
  • Leaf and tree limb piles need to be separated. Grass clippings are not part of this service and should not be combined with leaves.
  • Please do not block leaf piles with vehicles. The City cannot pick up bagged leaves at curbside.
  • Residents may take bagged leaves to the Waste Management Facility located at 1244 West Fry Road.
  • Normal leaf pickup is once every 10-15 business days.

Limb Pickup and Drop Off

Our year-round limb pickup service helps you clean up after routine yardwork, strong storms or a full outdoor makeover. Please consider the following guidelines:

  • Limbs must be less than 8 inches in diameter and no longer than 10 feet in length.
  • Limbs should be placed at the edge of the curb, not in the street.
  • The city cannot remove root balls, tree stumps, weed trimmings, grass, garden vegetation or used mulch.
  • Leaf and limb piles must be free of trash, lumber, wire, and any other garbage.
  • Residents also can drop off their limbs at the Fry Road Waste Management Facility located at 1244 West Fry Road (behind Fire Station).

Please note:  The City will not remove trees or vegetation generated by private contractors or companies hired to dispose of such items or any material brought in from other locations.
