Inside City of Searcy residents will receive a 2 time a week pick-up on household trash pick-up. Please call the Sanitation Department at 279-1000 to obtain your route schedule.

The City of Searcy offers free brush and junk removal. Please have these items in separate piles at your curbside and contact the Sanitation Department to have your piles scheduled for pick-up. Please make sure that limbs are no longer than 6ft in length.

The Sanitation Department does not pick-up concrete, dirt, tires or any kind of masonry items or hazardous chemicals. If you need to dispose of paint products please follow these instructions: make sure liquid paint is in a solid form before calling the Sanitation Department for removal. You can obtain this by putting dirt, sand, kitty litter or shredded newspaper into the can to make the paint into a solid matter…please place can with lid off at curbside and call the Sanitation Department to schedule pick-up.


Leaf & Limb Pick-Up

Information
The Searcy Sanitation Department is working diligently to insure that all leaf and limb pickups are done in an efficient systematic method within the City.  It has proven to be most effective to simply start on the east side of the City and work to the west.  This process takes between 4 - 6 weeks.  Once complete the leaf and limb trucks return to the east side the city to begin again.  Therefore, if the Leaf or Limb truck was recently in your area it will not return for at least 4 weeks.  Please be patient.

Guidelines
If you wish to have your leaves vacuumed simply rake them to the curbside.  Please do not rake leaves into the street, storm drains or ditches.  If you choose to bag your leaves please do so and put them at the curb. It is also important not to mix leaves and limbs together for pick up. 

Leaves and limbs cannot be picked up by our residential garbage trucks.  Residential garbage is taken to the transfer station and then to the landfill. 

Leaves and limbs are taken to the Mulch Center. By the end of November 2009, we have recycled 47,420 yards of leaves and limbs into mulch.  Residents may pick up free mulch Monday thru Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mulch Center located at 1840 North Main Street.
