Weekly trash collection service is provided by Metro Nashville Public Works to eligible apartments, public housing and Metro government buildings within the USD.


Each apartment, public housing project or government building may have 8 cubic yard dumpsters for trash disposal.

All trash must be bagged. Recyclable materials are not accepted. For more information about Metro's recycling programs and acceptable materials, visit our Recycling page.


Dumpsters are emptied once a week. If an apartment needs more frequent service they may contract with a private service for disposal.
