No Service Interruptions for Fourth of July Garbage and Recycling Collection

Posted: 06/26/2015
Waste Connections, the City of Knoxville's household garbage and recycling collector, will follow its regular schedule June 29 to July 3.  

The City’s Solid Waste Management Facility / Transfer Station, 1033 Elm St., will be closed on Friday, July 3, and Saturday, July 4, in observance of the holiday.

Amnesty Saturday (the first Saturday of each month, when no fees are charged to City residents using the facility) will take place on the second Saturday, July 11, due to the facility being closed on the first Saturday.

Downtown trash and recyclables will be collected on the regular schedule next week.

The city's recycling centers will be open for recycling; however, the Goodwill Industries attendant will not be available for household goods donations on Saturday, July 4, in observance of the holiday.

City Offices will be closed Friday, July 3.
