Household Trash

Household waste is accepted at all 14 Recycling Centers (formerly known as Convenience Centers). Compactor machines are available to dispose of bags of trash, and there are open-top containers for larger (or bulk) items. The open-top containers stand about six (6) feet tall. If you need help getting an item over into them, you will need to bring that help with you.

Bulk items refer to materials such as couches, mattresses and box springs, garage contents and other furniture pieces. Only small amounts are accepted; large loads are to be taken to Rutherford County Landfill.

Only one visit per day with the equivalent of one level pickup truck load is allowed.

The Rutherford County Recycle Center at Haley Road accepts recyclable materials only (no garbage).

No yard waste or brush. These items are accepted at Murfreesboro Mulch Facility.
