Welcome to the City of Sumter Sanitation Department 

Team Sanitation


Our Sanitation Team can be seen in both the residential and business sector of our City collecting residential garbage, residential recycling, residential yard debris, and commercial garbage and recycling.  We navigate the entire city limits every week collecting and transporting the City’s refuse and recycling.


Weekly residents are asked to have their roll cart and recycling bin at the curb by 7:00 AM for collection.


Holiday schedules:

  • The City will collect household garbage and recyclables on Thanksgiving Day.

  • The City will not collect household garbage or recyclables on Christmas Day. (If your pickup day falls on December 25, please stay tuned for annoucements for when your pickup day has been rescheduled.) 

  • The City will collect household garbage and recyclables on New Year's Day.
