Yard Waste & Appliance Pickup
Yard Debris Pickup Schedule
The Public Works Department Solid Waste Division is working diligently to address our annual leaf season collection. Currently, the Division has eight crews and three street sweepers working six days per week, collecting the nearly 12 million pounds of leaves expected throughout the city this season. We are asking for your patience and understanding during this leaf season.
The yard waste crew location will be posted daily until the season ends. Please check back to monitor our progress.

MulchYou can create your own mulch. To learn more about composting and generating your own mulch, see our composting program information. Free mulch is available at the Twin Chimneys Landfill for give away to individuals, businesses and landscapers. Our mulch consists of ground-up yard waste (i.e. tree limbs, logs, leaves and grass clippings) collected throughout the county.
By using our mulch, citizens help the environment and at the same time help Greenville County hold down landfill space and costs. Mulch is also useful in the garden to conserve water, maintain weed control, and to provide nutrients for plants.
