The Solid Waste and Recycling Division provides collection and disposal within the corporate city limits for garbage, recycling and yard waste. The division also provides services for special events such as St. Patrick's Day Celebration in Five Points, the Greek Festival, Famously Hot New Year and neighborhood clean-ups.


The City of Columbia observes 10 holidays and the Solid Waste Division collects on regular schedule for most holidays. To find changes in holiday collection schedules, visit our Waste Wizard!
