Recycling

Effective April 18, 2014: The City collects recyclable items in blue container bins town-wide on Friday every week.

Yard Debris / Bulk Garbage

The department operates boom trucks that pick up all street side trash for yard debris and bulk garbage. Residents just need to place the bulk solid waste by the curb. This service does not apply for pickup for contractors doing work, or for large volumes of bulk garbage from land clearing, demolition, or renovations. Contracting with a private hauler may be required or you can contact the Public Works Department to arrange a fee-for-service high volume pickup.

Commercial Sanitation

Commercial Sanitation services are provided to businesses within the City of Abbeville. The City is able to provide the proper capacity of containers or dumpsters with varying frequencies of pickup to fit your business needs. Please contact the City's Public Works Department for questions regarding container and pickup options.
