The Public Works Department is responsible for the provision of sanitation services and maintenance of the Town's parks and other public grounds. The sanitation services include the collection of household garbage, recyclable materials, yard trash, and bulk items. Sanitation services are funded through property tax revenues. Containers should be placed for collection no later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection. The only residential sanitation services that require additional fees are the collection of bulk items and excessive amounts of yard trash. If you are a new resident and your property does not have collection bins, please call Town Hall and request them. Due to high demand and shipping delays, garbage bins/large recycling bins may be on back-order.
Public Works Supervisor
Curbside household garbage is collected on Monday, recyclable materials are collected on Tuesday and yard trash is collected on Wednesday. During times with substantial yard debris, collection will continue through Friday as needed. Loose yard debris such as leaves, pine straw, or grass clippings must be bagged or placed in a can. Bulk items, such as furniture and items approved of by the Town of Springdale are typically picked up on Wednesday. Containers should be placed for collection no later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection. The only residential sanitation services that require additional fees are the collection of bulk items and excessive amounts of yard trash. Sanitation Collection schedules may be affected by Holidays. Please see our town calendar.
Many of the items listed that Springdale is unable to collect are accepted by Lexington County at special recycling collection events.
Construction/renovation debris generated by the homeowner or a contractor will not be disposed of by the Town of Springdale.
Please ensure that medical/biological waste is properly disposed of in sealed bags or containers, this includes needles, which should be in a sealed container and placed in household garbage only.
If you are placing large piles of yard debris on the curb, please neatly stack them away from any permanent structures and overhead obstructions such as trees or power lines. The grapple truck is used to pick up these larges piles and requires plenty of space to operate. Thank you for your cooperation.
All businesses in Springdale must contract with a private hauler for garbage collection. This includes businesses that are operated from residences. Please ensure that contractors, including landscapers, dispose of the waste that they produce. This waste will not be collected by the Town of Springdale.
SCDOT maintains most roads around Springdale and Lexington County Public Works maintains those remaining. We report many issues to SCDOT for repair, but you can as well using their online reporting system.
The Lexington Countywide Stormwater Consortium (LCSC) was created when Springdale officials passed a resolution to join forces with Lexington County as well as other municipalities in the county to tackle stormwater issues. The goal of the LCSC is to enhance water quality throughout the LCSC area through education, involvement and outreach; and by fostering partnerships with local governments, citizens, businesses and organizations to support healthy, fishable and swimmable waterways.
