Small Business Garbage Collection
Business collection is normally separate from residential collection. Schedules and procedures may be different for business customers especially on the holidays. If you are unsure of your collection day, call 704.336.4163 for assistance.

Businesses which generate more than 512 gallons of garbage/trash per week must arrange for collection from a private hauler. Click here for additional information. 

Businesses currently utilizing a private service are not permitted to transfer to City service.  Small businesses are not eligible for yard waste, recycling, or bulky item collection through the City of Charlotte.

Small Business Garbage collection crews also service public trash receptacles, primarily located at bus stops, within the City.  Frequency of service is based upon usage.
