Solid Waste Management

The Solid Waste Management Service Center is responsible for the collection and disposal of all solid waste within the City in accordance with State and Federal Laws.

In an ongoing effort to reduce the amount of solid waste being disposed in Memphis area landfills, Solid Waste Management has developed and implemented a variety of recycling programs and initiatives. Programs include curbside recycling, yard waste composting, household appliance recycling and drop-off centers. Additionally, we have developed educational activities and public recycling events such as America Recycles Day and Clean Out Files Day.
