Trash Collection Feedback

The Public Services Department welcomes your comments about trash collection service. Please call (864) 848-2184 with any comments or concerns..

Trash Containers
The City of Greer provides rollout containers (green carts with "City of Greer" stamped on them) to residents for the storage and disposal of household garbage only. The city contracts with Meridian Waste to collect this garbage curbside once per week from every city residence on an arranged schedule Monday through Friday. If you do not know the day on which your garbage is to be collected, please refer to the Trash Collection Schedule page.


If you move, please leave the rollout and recycling container at the residence and call the Public Services Department at 864-848-2184 so that it may be collected. The City of Greer maintains ownership of the containers.


Inclement weather or major holidays may occasionally force the weekly schedule to be altered, but every effort is made to reschedule collection for that week. Should this happen, notice of the new schedule will be posted to the City of Greer website and social media channels. For the holiday collection schedule, please see the link above.

"At the House" Service

Any resident who is physically unable to place the container at the curb will receive "at the house" service. The resident must provide proof that he or she is incapable of transporting the container and that no person capable of doing so lives at the residence. Any resident who requires this service should call the Public Services Department at (864) 848-2184.

Yard Waste

Please note that any contractor working for a city resident is responsible for collecting and removing debris from that project. Trees that are cut, topped, or removed must be cleaned up and removed by the homeowner. Soil, sod, and other excavated material will not be collected.

Grass, leaves (except during fall leaf collection), and small hedge trimmings must be bagged for collection. Debris may be place in readily available lawn and leaf bags with a capacity of no more than 39 gallons.

Tree Limbs & Bush Trimmings

A limited quantity (up to an amount of two truck loads or approximately eight cubic yards) of tree limbs and bush trimmings will be collected curbside at any residence on a weekly basis. Materials should be piled as neatly as possible along the curb or edge of the street, preferably with all cut ends laid in the same direction. Limbs must be no larger than 6 feet in length and 6 inches in diameter.
