Residential garbage is picked up every Thursday, except if a national holiday falls during the week, then it will be picked up one day later. Place your garbage container from Barker Brothers near the street and facing the street by 7:00 a.m. each Thursday.
Each home/apartment in Rutherford is provided with a Barker Brothers garbage container. This container is to stay with the property if you move. If your property does not have a container, please contact City Hall.
City street crews pick up brush and limbs each Monday. The first load is free of charge, as long as it does not exceed (1/2) of a truck load. Loads exceeding that will be charged accordingly.
All trash piled on the street will be picked up by the City at its' convenience. No partial loads will be hauled to avoid charges. Residents will be able to have the city dump trucks parked on their property for the resident to load themselves and be taken away by the city the next working day. THIS IS ON AN AVAILABILITY BASIS. Separate all paper, metal, glass, wood, and other products. Arrange this service with the Public Works Department Supervisor at 731-665-7166.
All pine needles, shrub trimmings and leaves (out of season) must be placed in plastic trash bags. Do not put said items in cardboard boxes.
The City is not responsible for the pick-up of tree trimmings done by private services without charging the responsible property owner. It is the responsibility of the property owner to make the party providing the trimming service aware of this. The property owner will be charged accordingly should the trimmings be placed on the street side.
The City will monitor subjects from outside the City bringing in trash, etc. into the City and placing it street-side in front of friends and relatives houses. The resident of the same address in front of which trash, etc. was placed will be charged accordingly.
The City has a yearly clean-up week during which it will haul away most anything, EXCEPT tires, shingles, or batteries.
The Town of Rutherford has a dumpster available for resident's use. Due to safety, security, and insurance regulations, access to this dumpster must be scheduled through City Hall by calling 731-665-7166.
This dumpster is for Town of Rutherford residents only and each vehicle checking into this area will be required to have current Town of Rutherford Auto Registration (city sticker).
