Yard waste is picked up on your scheduled collection day (Click here to see calendar magnet). Dry Trash should NOT be placed inside the City issued roll-out carts. Instead, grass clippings, leaves, branches, and other landscape debris, etc. must be properly placed in plastic bags and tied or paper storage sacks. Yard waste piles of larger sticks may be placed in small bundles, but should not exceed 8ft in length, 4ft in height and 4ft in width.
The City of Port Wentworth provides street sweeping for residential neighborhoods and industrial areas once a month. High priority routes (downtown district) are swept weekly on either Tuesday or Thursday mornings. Prior notification will be given to residents to be certain that they adhere to the regulations for street sweeping days.
Street sweeping helps keep contaminants from flowing into and clogging storm drains, as well as polluting streams which can cause flooding during heavy rains. Your cooperation will help us keep your streets as clean as possible.
On Street Sweeping Days:
• Park your car off the street.
• Keep landscaped plants trimmed back far enough to allow sweepers to reach the curb.
• Keep tree branches pruned to a height of 14 feet above street level to allow the sweeper to pass.
• Place recycled leaves and other yard debris on the curb for pickup on Dry Trash day.
For more information about street sweeping in your area, call 912-966-7427.
