Garbage Collection Services
The Town of Arlington provides garbage collection services to residents through a contract with WastePro of Tennessee. The town provides each household with one standard trash container to be placed curbside once weekly for collection. You may add up to three additional bags of household waste per week. Please place additional bags by the trash can. No personal cans are allowed.

Recycling of acceptable materials is encouraged by the Public Works Department. Your recycling cart is picked up on your normal solid waste collection day. The following video explains home recycling procedures.

Special Pick-Ups
Bulk items and bagged yard debris, leaves and grass trimmings not exceeding six (6) cubic yards will be picked up on your regularly scheduled garbage pick-up day if they are placed beside your garbage container.  Additional pick-up of bulk items and allowed materials exceeding 6 cubic yards will be done each Wednesday.  Please contact Public Works at (901) 867-4980 to be placed on this additional pick-up list, if necessary.  If you have any questions about yard debris or bulky waste removal, please contact Public Works at (901) 867-4980.
