Oak Ridge’s citywide trash pick-up program is underway and began Monday. Garbage, old appliances and small renovation materials will be picked up under this program.
The city’s collection efforts will follow the attached schedule as closely as possible, according to a city press release.
“Residents have always been very cooperative, and we ask for their continued cooperation this year by following a few guidelines,” the statement said. Guidelines are listed below, along with the city’s schedule.
Residents should place all materials close to the sidewalk, but not beyond. Keep materials off sidewalks and out of parking areas and gutters. Please pack as many items as possible to avoid items being strewn in prohibited areas.
There is a limit of one material truck per residence. A truck load is defined as a pick-up truck or approximately 3 feet high by 4 feet wide and 8 feet long, approximately 100 cubic feet maximum.
The Chestnut Ridge Landfill will not accept any items containing or containing Freon, such as air conditioners, freezers, and refrigerators. Crews will not pick up hazardous items, paint, tires, or piles of trash mixed with brush or leaves.
All materials must be in place no later than 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled pickup day. Any material dropped off after 7:30 a.m. cannot be picked up.
Fall leaf collection is scheduled to begin November 21. A new schedule will be provided prior to the start date. Bagged leaves/yard clippings will be picked up at the next collection. It should be noted that bagged garden waste will also be picked up with the regular garbage collection throughout the year.
The trash pickup schedule is available on the City of Oak Ridge website at http://bit.ly/ORtrashpickup2022. Note that the proposed schedule is a general guide and may vary significantly from the actual schedule due to weather conditions and/or degree of resident attendance.
