The City of Garnett requests that you refrain from blowing your grass clippings into the street when mowing and to keep leaves in the fall from lying in the curbs because it causes storm water drainage issues. Therefore, because the Trash Department cannot pick up grass clippings, leaves and brush, the City offers a special yard waste pick-up on the last Friday of each month for a reasonable charge. Please call City Hall to be placed on the list for the Yard Waste Pick-Up Program.

The City asks that you do not place your trash in a container bigger than 30 gallons.  To find out what day of the week the refuse service is provided in your neighborhood, contact City Hall.


Special pick-up of unwanted items, such as furniture, appliances (not containing Freon) and other household items is available to city residents. This also includes large piles of brush which cannot be included for the monthly yard waste pick-up fee due to size.  The charge for this Special Pick-Up service is $50 for up to a full dump truck load plus the Anderson County landfill fee.
