You can help us by following the 95-gallon container guidelines listed below:

  • Containers must be placed at least three (3) feet away from any other object (i.e. tree, mail-box, another container, etc.). Due to the possibility of damaging your property your container may not be emptied if it is placed too close to another item, allow enough room between containers and other objects for the grabber on the automated arm to grab the container.
  • Please place your garbage container at the curbside by 6:00AM on your scheduled collection day. Due to equipment breakdowns pickup times may change without notice. Containers should be removed from curbside by 6:00 p.m. after collection. A replacement fee will be charged for damaged or stolen containers.
  • Please place your garbage container at curbside with the handles facing away from the street.
  • Please bag all garbage prior to placing it in the container.
  • Remember, only garbage INSIDE the approved City container will be collected and the lid on the container must be able to close. If your container is overflowing or garbage is placed on top of the container, it may fall off when the truck empties it and it will be your responsibility to clean it up OR the container may not be emptied at all. Remember, the driver is the only person on the automated truck and has a route that he has to complete by the end of the shift.

Garbage containers must be at curbside by 6 a.m. on day of collection, but no earlier than 7 p.m. the day before.

Junk should be placed at curbside by 6 a.m. Monday on week of scheduled collection, but no earlier than the Sunday prior to scheduled collection.

What Happens to My Garbage?

The City of Sevierville hauls all household garbage to the composting facility at Sevier Solid Waste, Inc. (SSWI) located on Ridge Rd. where 70% of all garbage is composted and only residuals (plastic cans, metal, etc.) go into the landfill. Once the garbage is dumped on the tipping floor the process of composting begins. A major portion of this process involves the garbage moving through huge rotary digesters. When items other than household garbage end up in the digesters there is a potential for mechanical breakdown. When this happens it results in thousands of dollars in repair cost and man hours to both SSWI and local governments.

  • Large plastic containers, rugs, carpet/padding, rechargeable batteries, rope, bungee cords, water hose, pots/pans, flower pots, small/large appliances, TV’s/computers, /electronics, large plastic sheeting/tarps/pool liners, furniture, etc. These items should be placed at curbside for bulk/junk collection.
  • Paint, chemicals, flammable liquids, solids, or gases such as gasoline, used oil, benzene, alcohol, propane/Freon/helium cylinders, or other similar hazardous materials.
  • Hot materials such as ashes or cinders. Please wait until they cool.
  • Any infectious waste or biomedical waste. Call your medical supplier for disposal.
  • Human or animal waste, unless it is properly placed in a secure bag before being placed in the container.

What can I do with things the City will not pick up?

Tires: Tires without rims can be taken to Sevier County Co-Op, Five Oaks Tire, or Goforth Tire. It is recommended you call before going to make sure there is room on their trailer for the tires you have.

Paint: Add mulch, kitty litter, shredded paper, Quickrete, etc. and mix to the consistency of oatmeal. Leave the top off and place at curbside for pickup with junk. You may also take paint to the Household Hazardous Waste Day (see information below).

Chemicals: Hold until the next Household Hazardous Waste Day (see information below).

Oil: Sevier County Convenience Centers and local auto part stores.

Household Hazardous Waste Day: The State of Tennessee sponsors a Household Hazardous Waste Day to collect chemicals, paint, oil, antifreeze, propane tanks, etc. This free service is set up at the City of Sevierville Municipal Complex each year in the Spring - the exact date will be advertised.
