Garbage Collection ServicesThe Town of Arlington provides both garbage and recycling collection services to Town residents through a contract with WastePro of Tennessee.
The Town provides each household with one (1) standard trash container and one (1) recycle container to be placed curbside once weekly for collection. You may add up to three (3) additional bags of household waste per week. Please place additional bags by the trash can. No personal cans are allowed.
To determine your garbage collection day, see the attached map: Garbage Schedule
Recycling of acceptable materials is encouraged by the Public Works Department. Your recycling container is picked up on the same day as your trash collection. The following video explains home recycling procedures. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2cDqMvA4tw

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.
