Garbage & Recycling

The Town offers various Solid Waste Services to residents including curbside garbage, recycling, yard waste, and bulk item collection. Various route maps, collection schedules, and guides on what items can be collected are available below.

Garbage & Bulk Pickup

The Town uses a specialized automated side-load vehicle to collect solid waste. 95 gallon roll-out carts are provided to residents and are picked up weekly.  All garbage must have the liquid drained and putrescible waste must be bagged prior to placement in garbage containers. Garbage containers must be unobstructed with three foot clearance in all directions for pickup.  

The Collection of bulk items such as furniture, large plastic yard toys, mattresses, etc. can be requested using our Online Request Form or by calling 704-434-2357.

Effective July 1, 2021, the Town of Boiling Springs Public Works crews will only collect (bulk waste) furniture, large plastic yard toys, mattresses, etc. on the first Friday of every month. Bulk items should be placed adjacent to the street or sidewalk by 8:00 am but no sooner than 24 hours prior to the day of collection.

Yard Waste Service

Yard Waste is normally collected on the same day as garbage. Town crews work diligently to maintain this schedule but particularly during leaf-season, crews are overwhelmed by the volume of yard waste generated. When this happens, crews continue to collect the routes in order as quickly as possible to get back on schedule. Please see the policy below for more information about what items we can collect and how we maintain our collection schedule.

Recycling Service

Recycling is collected on alternating Fridays through a contract with Republic Services. A route map, annual calendar and information regarding recyclable materials is located below. To receive a recycling cart, call Town Hall at 704-434-2357 or submit our Online Request Form.
