Citywide Household Trash Pickup to Begin October 3, 2022

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (Sept. 26, 2022) – The citywide household trash pickup program will begin Monday, October 3, 2022. Household rubbish, old appliances, and minor remodeling materials will be picked up. City collection efforts will follow the accompanying schedule as closely as possible.

Residents have always been very cooperative, and we ask for their continued cooperation this year by following a few guidelines:

  • Residents should place all materials near, but not beyond the curb. Keep materials off sidewalks and out of parking areas and gutters. Please bag as many items as possible to prevent items from being scattered in prohibited areas.
  • There is a limit of one truckload of material per residence. A truckload is defined as one pickup truck or approximately 3′ high x 4′ wide x 8′ long, approximately 100 cubic feet maximum.
  • Please be advised that Chestnut Ridge Landfill will NOT accept any item that has or had Freon in it, such as, air conditioners, freezers and refrigerators. Crews will NOT pick up hazardous items, paint, tires, or piles of rubbish that are mixed with brush or leaves.
  • All materials must be in place no later than 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled pickup day. Any materials put out after 7:30 a.m. may not be picked up.

The Fall leaf collection is scheduled to begin on November 21, 2022. A new schedule will be provided in advance of the start date. Bagged leaves/yard clippings will be picked up during the next collection. It should be noted that bagged yard waste will also be picked up with the regularly scheduled refuse collection throughout the year.

The household trash pickup schedule can be found on the City of Oak Ridge website at http://bit.ly/ORtrashpickup2022. Please note that the proposed schedule is a general guide and can vary from the actual schedule due to weather conditions and/or the amount of participation by residents.
