The City contracts with Allied/BFI Waste Services for garbage pickup once a week and charges $8.63 per month for each container. You will be given a blue, wheeled garbage cart. We ask that you bag your garbage (preferably in plastic bags) before placing it in the cart. On the day that your garbage is collected you will need to roll your cart to the street before 7:00 a.m. and place it on the curb within eighteen inches (18”) of the street (not in the street) with the cart handles facing toward your house (remember Handles to House). Do not place the cart within five feet of any stationary object (mailbox, tree, utility pole, vehicle, etc.)
There are several things we ask you to remember:
- DO NOT place anything in the cart except household garbage.
- DO NOT pile garbage around the cart (even in plastic bags). The truck WILL NOT pick it up unless it is in the cart.
- DO NOT leave your cart on the curb longer than 24 hours. The City has an ordinance which requires you to keep your cart out of public view on days when it is not being picked up.
If your garbage pick-up is missed, call 892-9306.
If you live outside the city limits, call 901-794-3800.
The City considers residential trash to be the following: broken-down boxes, attic and garage rubbish, household rubbish, furniture, clothing, wooden fencing (small quantities only), computers, televisions, copy machines, hot water heaters and appliances. Please note, freon must be removed from air conditioners, refrigerators and freezers by a licensed technician and tagged by the technician before we can pick them up. Freon is considered hazardous waste. The landfill will not accept appliances without this tag. Refrigerators and freezers must have the doors removed. This trash will be picked up according to the Trash Pick-up Schedule Map with the exception of appliances. Appliances are picked up on Fridays only. You must call in advance to notify Public Works to have your appliances pickup. Appliances must be on the curb by 7:00 AM.
The City provides curbside pickup of limbs. Limbs should be no longer than four (4) feet and no bigger than four (4) inches in diameter. Limbs will normally be chipped curbside and hauled away. Heavy brush will be picked up as time permits, at least monthly. City personnel will pickup trees cut by property owners if they are cut to manageable dimensions and placed by the curb or street. The tradesmen or property owner shall remove all trees cut by a hired tradesman.
The City provides curbside pickup of loose leaves from the first of November through the end of March. Leaves should be placed in the yard next to the curb or street. Bagged leaves are picked up year round. Leaves should be separated from other debris.
Contact Public Works – Street and Sanitation Dept. at 895-5249 for Pick-up
The City of Olive Branch supports the recycling of trash by our citizens to be in the best interest of our Nation, our State and our City. You will be given a recycle bin for your recyclables. Your bin is to be placed on the curb, containing your recyclables, alongside your garbage cart on the same day as your garbage pickup. We strongly urge you to participate in the Recyclables Program.
