Yard waste collection in the Urban Services District, which includes the Cherokee Triangle, is now on seasonal shutdown until March 12th.
The shutdown is possible because yard waste collection volumes are very low in the winter months. So Metro Public Works can direct additional resources to clearing our streets and roads, including interstate highways, of litter in advance of spring, along with other solid waste activities.
During the suspension period, do not put out any yard waste for regular collection. For any yard waste problems call Metro 311 or 574-5000. Calls will be handled on an as-needed-basis rather than running crews full-time on regular route throughout the city.
