The Solid Waste Division of the Public Works Department is responsible for collecting and disposing of commercial and residential garbage. We offer twice a month collection of bulk/junk items; once a month removal of yard waste (which includes tree trimmings, leaves, grass and shrub clippings); provide roll-off service to City of Sevierville residential customers for demolition and clean up projects. We oversee recycling efforts at the City’s drop off location, most schools within the city limits, and collection of cardboard from commercial businesses. We provide crews in coordination with Sevier County’s Intensive Public Service Program for litter pickup along city streets and state highways within the city. We keep our streets clean by disposing of dead animals. The Solid Waste Department also works with Keep Sevier Beautiful to collect trash and litter from community clean up and special events. The Solid Waste Division plays a vital role in the Household Hazardous Waste Day sponsored by the State of Tennessee each year. All garbage is hauled to Sevier Solid Waste, Inc. (SSWI) Compost and Landfill Facility on Ridge Road.
During this time of uncertainty, Sevier Solid Waste Inc wants to make sure residents have access to the latest information.

Why not rent a container to throw construction materials or debris in? The City now has fourteen-foot roll-off containers that residential customers can rent.
How it works:
Locate an area on the property to put the container. Keep in mind the truck dropping off and picking up the container needs room to maneuver. Call the Public Works Department (865-429-4567) to arrange for the container to be delivered. Arrange for billing (usually through your water account). Once the container is full and you’re ready for it to be emptied, call the Public Works Department to schedule a pickup. Always make sure there is nothing blocking the container when the truck comes to pick it up.
Cost: The cost to rent a roll-off container is the current landfill tipping fee (plus $1.25 per ton state tax) and a $125.00 haul fee (approximately $205.00 per load).
Roll-Off Rental Period: 30 days
Garbage collected by the City of Sevierville is taken to the Sevier Solid Waste, Inc.
