The City offers weekly trash removal and recycling pick up throughout the year to our residents and businesses.

Purchase Trash & Recycling Bins

City-approved trash receptacles and recycling bins can be purchased by residents and businesses by visiting the Business Development Department at Mauldin City Hall, 5 East Butler Road. Bins may only be purchased by cash or check. Once your bin has been purchased, it will be delivered to your address within 48 hours, excluding weekends and holidays.

  • Green street trash can (for residential waste): $65
  • Blue Recycling Bins: $25

The rollout container and its care are each resident’s responsibility. It should be cleaned regularly and kept closed to keep out water. Store the container beside or behind the house or in an enclosure.

Street Sweeping

Street sweeping keeps our community clean and safe by removing dirt, garbage, petroleum products, vegetation and other materials that regularly collect on our streets and paths. Storm drainage systems are designed to drain excess rain and ground water from streets, parking lots, footpaths, sidewalks, and roofs. Keeping our storm drains clear helps reduce pollution and flooding.

YARD DEBRIS

The city will collect yard debris that follows the guidelines below and operates curbside leaf pickup throughout the year on an as-needed basis.

Pickup Guidelines

  • All items must be placed curbside
  • Grass and small hedge trimmings must be bagged, tied closed, and placed on the street.
  • Loose leaves may be placed at the curb or edge of street to be vacuumed
  • Catch basins, inlets, and gutters should be kept free of leaves and debris.
  • Limited amounts of tree limbs and bush trimmings (4 cubic ft.) will be collected by the city. Materials shall be piled as neatly as possible. Limbs are to be no larger than 6 feet in length and 6 inches in diameter.
  • Loose yard debris should not be placed in trash containers. Trash receptacles containing loose yard debris will not be emptied.
  • Yard debris should not be co-mingled. Please place leaves in a pile separate from limbs.
  • Please keep all curbside piles away from catch basins to prevent storm drain clogging.

Non-Collectable Items

  • Soil, sod, and other excavated material
  • Yard waste produced and collected by contractors who work for city residents must be disposed of by the contractor.

Christmas Trees

Mauldin Sanitation crews will collect curbside Christmas trees. Residents may also drop off trees at Springfield Park after removing all lights and decorations including garland and tinsel.
