Loose leaves, grass clippings, and straw collected from April 1 to October 31 must be bagged and placed at the curb the night before scheduled pick-up. Loose leaves, grass clippings, and straw collected from November 1 to March 31 do not have to be bagged.
The Town of Nashville has begun composting yard trash. The composting program requires that certain types of yard trash be collected and composted separately. Therefore, residents are required to separate this debris at the curb. Leaves and grass, limbs, trimmings, etc., should be piled behind the curb and should be separated in piles. (Leaves and grass clippings may be mixed together.) All limbs must be cut into pieces no longer than 4' long and 5" in diameter. Yard trash that does not conform to these regulations will not be collected.
Yard waste will be picked up on your scheduled day. Other items that are too large for the green roll-out carts will follow a different procedure. These items (furniture, grills, mattresses, etc.) will be picked up on Fridays. If you have a large item that needs to be picked up, please notify Town Hall by Thursdays at noon. A work order will be completed and the item(s) will be picked up on Fridays.
All items need to be placed behind the curb. Please do not place in the gutter and impede water flow. Finally, please be advised that we will pick up yard waste as long as it does not fill up one flatbed truck. If you have a truckload or more and request that it all be picked up, you will be charged a fee according to the adopted fee schedule.
