    • Recyclables are picked up on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday's of every month. The City of Port Wentworth participates in Single Stream Recycling, meaning no separation is needed! Simply toss in cardboard boxes, old magazines & phone books, plastic bottles & containers, glass bottles & jars, newspapers, etc. and you're all done. Please do NOT include food waste, films, plastic bags & wrap, or foam cups & containers. Any debris located outside of the cart will not be picked up. 
    • Bulk items (appliances, furniture, mattresses, etc.) are scheduled to be collected, at no charge to the resident, on your scheduled collection day (Click here to see calendar magnet). Residents may call 912-966-7427 prior to the scheduled collection day or simply place items at curbside by 7:00 a.m. and items will be removed by 7:00 p.m. Bulk item collections are subject to limitations as enacted by the City of Port Wentworth Code of Ordinances.

    • Household garbage should be placed in the roll-out carts provided by Republic Services and placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. on scheduled collection day. Make sure the handles/wheels are facing the residence and that all garbage fits inside the cart. 

      Garbage outside of trash cart will not be collected. 

      Trash carts should be free of obstruction and at least 3ft apart when placing out 2 or more carts. 

      Construction debris of any sort will NOT be collected (old carpet, paint, cabinetry, etc.). 

    • 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. 

      Do not leave any leaves in the streets. Large piles will hamper the sweeper, which may clog drains and cause flooding in your neighborhood during a rainstorm

      For more information about street sweeping in your area, call 912-966-7427.
