Extensive and thorough trash service in Downtown Knoxville ensures that our downtown remains an enjoyable place to shop, dine, live, and work. City of Knoxville employees pick up residents' and business' trash seven days a week, preventing unsanitary and unpleasant pile-ups, vermin, and litter.

Please note that the trash and recycling wheeled carts located throughout downtown are for any downtown businesses and downtown residents to use; neither businesses nor residents are assigned carts. The one exception to this rule is dumpsters: dumpsters are picked up by private trash companies and are not for the general public to use.

Please contact our office with any questions.
