Household Brush and Yard Waste Collection Program
The City of Knoxville's Public Service Department crews collect brush and other household yard waste every two weeks on pre-set schedules from March through October of each year.
Yard waste should be placed next to the street in an unobstructed area and kept separate from other trash. On each two-week cycle, a single 6' x 6' x 6' pile of brush or leaves will be collected. Each year, the City picks up approximately 33,000 tons of yard waste, all of which is recycled into reusable mulch. During the annual fall leaf collection season brush pick-up is suspended and and collected as resources are available.
Please note that although brush schedules are pre-set and consistent, heavy storms may cause minor shifts in the schedule. All changes will be reflected in the 311 information system.
