For Immediate Release
Garbage Day Change for Fort Sanders Neighborhood
June 27, 2012 - The City of Knoxville is changing the day garbage is collected in the Fort Sanders area to Mondays.

Starting July 9, Waste Connections, the City's contractor, will pick up garbage on Mondays each week instead of Fridays. Garbage will not be picked up on Friday, July 6, but will be collected on Monday, July 9.

The City is implementing this change in conjunction with the Historic Fort Sanders Neighborhood Association to ensure the health and well-being of the community at large, and accommodate the influx of weekend visitors and activities.

In addition to letters mailed to property owners, the residences affected by this change will receive a door-knocker leaflet on Friday, June 29, outlining the details.

The City of Knoxville provides garbage collection for buildings with four or fewer residential units. Apartment buildings with more than four units provide their own garbage pickup, usually with dumpsters for collection instead of individual garbage cans. Garbage collection via dumpsters will not be affected by the City's change.

Garbage and recycling must both still be placed by the curb or alley (depending on the address) by 7 a.m. on the day of pickup.

Those Fort Sanders residents participating in the City's curbside recycling program will continue to have recycling pickup every other Friday (July 6, July 20, August 3, etc.).

For more information or questions, please call the City at 311 or 215-4311.
