Solid Waste

The Murfreesboro Solid Waste Department is responsible for curbside collection of household garbage and yard waste. Together, we work hard to help make your neighborhood look as pleasing as possible. We'll provide residents with a free 96-gallon garbage cart and we will empty it once per week. Additional carts are available for purchase. For more information or to purchase an additional cart, please call 615-893-3681
