 "Help the Environment this Spring by properly placing yard waste at the curb for collection"



Collierville Recycle Program Featured in Tennessee Public Works Magazine





Help the Environment this Spring by properly placing yard waste at the curb for collection


Spring is around the corner and with the warmer weather residents Town wide will begin working in their yards again. This is also the time of season when most residents begin trimming trees and bushes along their properties.
The Public Service Department would like to remind all residents to please separate their brush and yard trimmings from other items such as bagged grass/leaves and junk at the curb.
By separating your clean brush from other materials such as grass bags, cardboard, steel or plastic pieces, the Solid Waste Collection Division is able to take the brush to a mulching facility where the material can be ground and beneficially reused as mulch. This allows our Town the ability to improve the environment and save space in local landfills.
Correct Placement of Yard Waste
Incorrect Placement of Yard Waste
In addition to separating your materials at the curb you can also help the environment by Grass-cycling. Grass-cycling is the natural recycling of grass clippings by leaving them on the lawn when mowing. It is a simple and effective way to help conserve landfill capacity, while saving time, work, and money and the benefit is a greener, healthier lawn. All mowers can grass-cycle. Simply remove your mower's collection bag and properly block the discharge. Many manufacturers have attachments or special designs that improve a mower's grass-cycling performance. Check with your local retailer for more information.


Household Garbage Collection



Household Garbage Placement
Household garbage must be placed in the Green cart (kitchen, bathroom, personal and/or indoors-type wastebasket trash) to be picked up. Garbage on top of the cart lid or beside the cart will not be picked up. Propping the lid up is acceptable if the garbage is bagged, but cart cannot be overflowing.
Items such as bagged grass, bagged leaves, boxes, branches, boards, carpet, metal, will not be collected by the Automated Truck (Green cart). Other trucks will pick up these items on your regular collection day.
Excess Household Garbage
Please ensure that all household garbage is placed inside the green garbage carts for collection. Due to the use of automated garbage trucks household garbage not placed inside the carts will not be collected. Excess household garbage can be stacked inside the cart with the lid propped open.
The following pictures show the proper way to dispose of excess household garbage.
If the additional household garbage will not fit inside the green garbage cart as shown above an additional cart may be ordered or the additional trash can be taken to the Collierville Solid Waste Transfer Station on Saturdays between 8AM and 12 Noon.
For more information please reference the Sanitation Guidelines or call the Public Service Department at (901)457-2800

Sharps Disposal

Sharps include needles, syringes and lancets. Used sharps have the potential to harm anyone that comes in contact with them. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently issued new recommendations for disposal of sharps at home:

Mail-back Service:

This is a service you purchase. Included in your service will be a needle container and mail-back packaging. You simply fill the container with your used needles and mail it back using the package provided for you. The price for this service varies on the size of needle container you choose. To locate a provider, you can call the Coalition for Safe Community Needle Disposal at 1-800-643-1643 or visit their website at Be sure to ask the company if their service is approved by the U.S. Postal Service.

Home Needle Destruction Devices:

These destruction devices allow you to destroy needles at home by burning, melting, cutting off the needle— making it safe to throw in the garbage. Prices for devices vary by manufacturer. For more information visit

If the above options are not feasible, you may follow these instructions for disposal:

Place sharps in a hard plastic or metal container, with a screw-on or tightly secured lid. Thick plastic bottles such as detergent bottles or bleach bottles work well. Do not fill the container more than ¾ full to avoid getting a needle stick. Before discarding the container, reinforce the lid with heavy duty tape. Do not put sharps in a glass container, or any container that you plan to recycle. Keep all containers with sharps out of the reach of children or pets until you dispose of it in your regular trash.


Proper Paint Disposal

Placing wet paint in the garbage or pouring paint out into the street is against the law and can harm the environment. Please dispose of your paint properly in one of the following ways:
  • Reuse leftover paint for touch-ups or donate it to a community organization.
  • For water-based paint, remove the lid and allow the paint to dry. Absorbent material (kitty litter, oil dry, ect.) can be added to the paint to speed up the drying process. Once the paint is dry, it can be placed in your green garbage cart.
  • * Oil-based paint must be disposed at the Memphis/Shelby County Household Hazardous Waste Disposal facility.


10 Tips for controlling pests & reducing odors in and around Household Garbage carts

1. Always keep the lid of your cart closed
2. Keep your household trash in sealed plastic garbage bags
3. Never put food waste directly into your cart
4. Periodically wash out your cart using water and a mild detergent
5. Keep your cart properly maintained (ensure your cart is free of holes that would give pests access to your garbage)
6. Leave food scraps in your refrigerator or freezer until the night before collection.
7. Store your cart in a cool dry place when possible and keep it out of sunlight
8. Sprinkle baking soda in your cart to reduce odors
9. If pests like raccoons, possum, cats, or dogs are getting into your garbage cart sprinkle ammonia or moth balls inside the cart and it will act as a deterrent to the animal.
10. Commercial pest sprays can also be applied to the carts contents to deter pests (follow manufacturers instructions and ensure the spray will not adversely react with or damage the cart).

Yard Waste Collection



Loose Leaf Collection

(November thru March)
Current Collection Schedule: Loose leaf collection will begin on the first Monday in November and will run until the last Friday in March, For more information please call (901) 457-2800 Ext 2. Pine needles will not be collected by loose leaf collection crews. Please bag all loose piles of pine needles and place them at the curb for collection during your regular garbage day.
Loose leaf collection routes are scheduled to follow the regular solid waste collection schedule as closely as possible. However, loose leaf collection may not occur on the same day as your regular collection day due to leaf volume and inclement weather.
For example all loose leaves on Monday’s route may take more than one day for collection prior to moving to Tuesday’s route. This would delay collection of Tuesday’s route and other collection days throughout the week. In some instances, there can be more than a week's delay in collection although on average, loose leaf collection will normally take place within a few days of your regular collection day.
For leaf disposal without delay, leaves can be mulched using a mulching lawnmower blade or can be bagged and collected on your regular solid waste collection day.
We request leaves be placed close to the streets edge but out of the street to reduce storm drainage blockages.

Placement of Yard Waste

Please ensure that all yard waste is piled away from utility boxes or other structures that could be hidden from view and damaged during yard waste collection.
The following pictures are examples of damage that was a result of yard waste piled over a cable utility box.


Environmental friendly Alternatives to Loose Leaf and Bagged Leaf Collection

Last year our town generated approximately 13,355 tons of solid waste associated with the collection of loose leaves, bagged leaves and bagged grass. Of that 13,355 tons 12,473 tons where sent to a landfill and 882 tons where composted. Bagging these materials and placing them into the curbside garbage collection system uses valuable landfill space, removes nutrients from the environment, and costs the Town and citizens more in increased taxes and service fees.
Of the landscape waste, approximately half is composed of tree leaves. Mulching is a simple and effective way to recycle leaves and improve your landscape. A light covering of leaves can be mowed, without the catch-bag, leaving shredded leaves in place on the lawn. This technique is most effective when a mulching mower is used.
During times of light leaf drop, or if there are only a few small trees in your landscape, this technique is the most efficient and easiest way to manage leaf accumulation. As organic mulch decomposes, valuable nutrients are released for use by landscape plants. The tree leaves that accumulate in and around a landscape represents a valuable natural resource that can be used to provide a good source of organic matter and nutrients for use in a landscape.
Leaves contain 50-80% of the nutrients a plant extracts from the soil and air during the growing season. Leaves may be collected and worked directly into garden and flowerbed soils. A 6-8 inch layer of leaves tilled into a heavy, clay soil will improve aeration and drainage. The same amount tilled into a light, sandy soil will improve water and nutrient holding capacity. In vegetable gardens and annual planting beds, collect and work leaves into the soil during the Fall. This allows sufficient time for the leaves to decompose prior to Spring planting.
For additional information call the Public Services Department at (901) 457-2800

Contract related work/ Excessive Brush at Residential Properties

If debris is left because of contractor related work, The resident or contractor must dispose of such materials privately.
If the resident does the work themselves they have two options:
Pay for debris materials left after sanitation collects its maximum amount. Drivers will alert Sanitation Supervisor for assessment. The Supervisor will advise the homeowner what the charge will be and the fee will be collected before the work is done.
Sanitation will collect maximum amount of debris the following weeks until debris has been removed.





BENEFITS OF GRASSCYCLING                                                         

Grass-cycling is the natural and easy process of leaving grass clippings on the lawn when  mowing. 

Recycling grass clippings is simple, effective and saves time, work, money and  it helps conserve landfill  capacity.

Grass-cycling is not new. Many parks and golf courses have been practicing grasscycling successfully for years.

The end result is a greener, healthier lawn.



An 11-year study at the USDA research station in Beltsville MD showed that thatch is mainly composed of grass roots, not clippings. Clippings left on the lawn decay quickly and release nutrients back to the established grass.



Watering, fertilization, and sharpness of the mower blade have a greater influence on the occurrence of lawn disease than grass-cycling.    



·         No need for bagging

·         Uses less water and fertilizer

·         Reduces use of landfill space

·         Clipping nutrients encourage a healthier lawn

·         Less mowing, hauling.



 ·         Established lawns need irrigation to supplement natural rainfall yet may require more water in hot weather, even in dry cool periods.

·         In hot dry weather, lawns may need as much as 1” of water every 5 to 7 days or up to  3-hours  with the typical sprinkler.

·         Try to water in early morning.  Watering in evenings may encourage disease.

·         Portable sprinklers offer reasonable prices for watering, distribution and range methods. Select a sprinkler based on the size and shape of your lawn.

·         Stationary sprinklers are good for small patches that need extra water.

·         Rotary and impact sprinklers are for circular watering on lawns that are medium to large.           

·         Oscillating sprinklers send a fan of water over a large rectangular area. Revolving sprinklers work in smaller areas, shooting a circular pattern of jets of water.

·         A time-controlled irrigation system can maximize efficiency with an automatic lawn watering schedule.




Lawns need properly timed fertilizer applications to become dense and green. Over fertilization weakens your lawn and causes excess top growth. Grass-cycling, in conjunction with proper fertilization, enhances the health of your lawn. Grass-cycling greatly reduces the need for fertilizer because grass clippings return nitrogen to the soil.  




 ·         Grass-cycling, reduces costs and improves the environment because it reduces the number of grass bags taken to the landfill.

·         The Town collects an average of 6,300 tons of bagged grass or approximately 77,300 bags each year. All bagged grass collected is taken to a landfill for disposal.

·         Collection of bagged grass costs the Town $275,000 per year for collection and disposal.



 ·         Cut when the grass is dry. Keep your mower sharp.

·         Set your mower to cut at the proper height.

·         Mow often. Try not to remove more than one-third of the lawn height each cut.. Frequent moving may be needed at times.   

·         Proper mowing is essential to grass-cycling and can increase lawn quality by 30% or more.

·         All mowers can grass-cycle. Simply remove your mower’s collection bag.

·         Many manufacturers have attachment or special designs that improve a mower’s grass-cycling performance.

·         Frequent mowing at a low cutting height deprives the root system of nutrients and moisture. Longer grass blades create more shade, providing the soil protection from the sun.

Q: What is the official name of the household hazardous waste collection facility?
A: The Memphis and Shelby County Household Hazardous Waste Facility.
Q: Who is the operator of the facility?
A: Shelby County. Since the facility is for all residents of Shelby County, Memphis and Shelby County agreed the facility should be built and operated by Shelby County. Therefore, Memphis subcontracted with Shelby County (as it relates to the use of TDEC grant funds) to build and operate the facility.
Q: What is the address of the facility?
A: 6305 Haley Road (See map Above)
Q: Where is Haley Road?
A: Haley Road is located off Farm Road between Walnut Grove and Mullins Station, next to the Penal Farm/ Shelby Co. Corrections Center
Q: What is the opening date for the public?
A: Tuesday, November 27, 2007
Q: What are the days and hours the public can bring material?
A: 8:30 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. Tuesdays and Saturdays
Q: Why is the facility only open two days?
A: For budgetary reasons, the facility will initially be open two days per week (Tuesdays and Saturdays). Due to the high costs of operations involving this form of waste, we must proceed cautiously as management gains a better feel for operational needs and costs. On days other than Tuesday and Saturday, management and staff will be concentrating on material preparation, shipping and other business, in order to make room for incoming materials.
Q: Why is the facility only open 8:30 a.m. till 1:00 p.m.?
A: Operationally, the staff will be on site 8:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m.; which is an eight hour work day. However, ample time will be needed before and after collections and time will be needed to prepare materials before the end of the work day. Therefore, in order to properly manage the material, collection hours must be limited to 8:30 am. to 1:00 p.m.
Q: Is there a cost for residents to drop-off material?
A: Free to Shelby County residents.
Q: What is household hazardous waste?
A: Household hazardous waste refers to material generated in a residential home which are toxic, ignitable, corrosive or reactive and may be a danger to residents and the environment if not properly disposed.
Q: What materials will the facility ACCEPT?
A: See separate list of acceptable material. Please note: The list is subject to change. Municipal governments of Shelby County are responsible for providing this information to their residents.
Q: What is NOT ACCEPTABLE at the facility?
A: See separate list of unacceptable material. Please note: The list is subject to change.
Q: Why is it necessary to build a household hazardous waste collection facility?
A: To prevent hazardous material from contaminating the environment, reduce the risk to consumers and to promote proper waste management.
Q: Why is it called a “collection” facility?
A: The facility is technically a “drop-off” facility, where residents can bring hazardous material. There will be no processing or disposal of hazardous materials on site, only packaging and shipping. Also, the facility does not operate vehicles to collect from resident’s homes.
Q: Is there a limit to what can be dropped off?
A: Yes, 15 gallons or 100 lbs. per vehicle, per month.
Q: Why has it taken so long to get a household hazardous waste collection facility for Shelby County?
A: The residential waste stream is extremely complex and it is very expensive to collect, sort, package and dispose of the multitude of hazardous materials generated in homes; therefore, there must be ample funding in place to build and operate the appropriate collection facility. It has taken many years of discussions and negotiations to find the proper site and funding to open this facility.
Q: Do we have ample funding?
A: The answer to this question is unknown. Enough funds have been appropriated to build a facility and begin collections on a limited scale; however, the volume and cost for collecting and processing will ultimately determine what funding is necessary.
Q: Why are the collection and disposal costs higher for household hazardous waste than regular household waste?
A: Unlike non-hazardous waste, each hazardous material requires special handling, packaging and disposal, which is much higher than the cost of disposal at local landfills. Example: One ton of hazardous material may cost hundreds or thousands of dollars to dispose versus $20 -$30 per ton for regular waste in a local landfill.
Q: Do all Shelby County municipalities have a role in this facility?
A: Yes. Each municipality in Shelby County has committed to contribute funds annually based on the population of their city. Also, each municipality is responsible for answering questions, promotion, education and the dissemination of information to residents of their respective communities.
Q: Who can use the facility?
A: Only residents of Shelby County are eligible to bring material to the facility. No commercial waste, commercial vehicles or vehicles from other counties or states will be allowed on site. Vehicles with out-of-county tags will be turned away.
Q: Why are commercial businesses not allowed to bring material?
A: This facility was built to provide an outlet for residentially generated or household hazardous waste and the State of Tennessee grant which helps fund the facility stipulates no commercial waste. Commercial generators must contract with hazardous waste companies directly.
Q: Will residents need identification at the facility?
A: Yes, residents may be asked to provide identification by facility management.
Q: Where do residents call for intformation and assistance about the household hazardous waste?
A: Contact Collierville Public Services at (901) 457-2800
Q: If there is a long line, what is the procedure at closing time?
A: The line will end at 1:00 p.m. at a place to be determined by management on the drive leading to the facility, off Haley Road. Vehicles behind the designated ending point in line; will be instructed to return another day.
Q: Why is there a cut off point in the line at 1:00?
A: The facility’s staff cannot collect and prepare materials at the same time; therefore, ample time is needed each work day in order to gather all the materials collected that day and to prepare them for storage until the next work day. Since several hours are needed, a cut-off point in the line is necessary. We respectfully ask everyone’s patience and understanding as it relates to closing time.
Q: What happens to the hazardous waste once it is collected?
  1. Again, there will be no processing or disposal of hazardous waste at the facility.
  2. Materials will be sorted, packaged and shipped to various recycling and disposal facilities.
  3. Professional contractors specializing in hazardous and non hazardous waste management will process the materials.
  4. Every effort will be made to recycle materials to avoid disposal and local outlets for materials may be utilized.
Q: May residents call the facility directly?
A: The facility is not prepared to field calls, as the staff will be busy addressing hazardous materials. Note: Shelby County is the operator of the facility and will determine contact with the facility.
Q: Will the facility be open for tours?
A: Due to the nature of this operation, tours and walk up visits will not be allowed.
Q: What procedures do residents need to follow at the facility?
  1. The facility is a drive through operation
  2. The facility address is 6305 Haley Road (directly behind the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation). See map
  3. The drive leading to the fenced facility is located on the south side of Haley Road, just past the stop sign at Haley and Nixon Rd. (the Shelby Co. Correction Facility is across the road from the entrance)
  4. Vehicles will proceed on a paved drive approximately 75 yards from Haley Road to the gates of the facility.
  5. The road will be marked with arrows for residents to follow.
  6. Vehicles will proceed in line until told to stop.
  7. Residents are to remain in their vehicle, unless otherwise instructed.
  8. Facility staff will remove the material from vehicles.
  9. Upon unloading, vehicles will proceed slowly, following the marked drive, which circles the building and brings the vehicles back through the gates, to Haley Rd.
Q: What if someone intentionally does not follow procedures?
A: Anyone intentionally not following facility instructions, will be told to leave by facility management. If necessary, law enforcement may be contacted for assistance.
Q: What if someone dumps material outside the facility?
A: Illegal dumping will dealt with aggressively and violators will be prosecuted.
