Garbage pick up is on Tuesday and Friday of each week. Each home is supplied with a green 90-gallon garbage can for household garbage only. Please call City Hall if you are in need of a replacement. If garbage pick up day should fall on a holiday, garbage will be picked up the next trash pickup day.
Brush & Leaves
Brush & Leaves are removed as necessary on the remaining weekdays. The street department removes leaves with a vacuum and therefore asks that you keep them separate from brush. Please do not block drains and streets, or place your debris near fire hydrants and/or busy intersections. Brush removal is limited to yard trimmings as the City does not have a stump grinder and cannot contend with large limbs and stumps. Private contractors are responsible to remove their own debris. If you have a special occasion, please call City Hall and give at least one weeks notice to arrange a pickup. We regret the City cannot pick up discarded appliances, furniture, or mattresses.
Receptacles are located at City Hall for all mixed paper and aluminum. Corrugated cardboard is accepted at the maintenance barn in the Town of Lookout Mountain, Tennessee. Plastic and glass are not being accepted for recycling anywhere on the mountain currently.
Sewer Grinders are maintained by the City at no cost to the homeowner unless the system has been abused. Each grinder is equipped with an alarm system to alert the homeowner to any sort of malfunction. If the alarm sounds, please call City Hall at (706) 820-1586 and a technician will be sent out to repair the system.
Billing for the City's sewer utility is processed by the North West Utility District (NWUD) in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. You can mail your payment to them at NWUD P.O. Box 575 Soddy Daisy, TN 37384, or call them at (423) 332-2427 to make a payment by telephone.
Sewer Bill Adjustment
If you have had a water leak that did not go into the sewer system, then you may be eligible for a sewer bill adjustment. The sewer billing adjustment form is available on the Documents page.
If you have a sewer alarm or any other serious sewer problem, please call (706) 820-1586 during the normal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., or if the issue occurs after hours or on weekends please call (706) 820-1051.
