Household Trash Collection


All household garbage must be in securely tied plastic bags and placed inside of provided trash containers. Containers provided by Tyler’s Sanitation must be placed by the roadway/curb the night before pickup. Once your garbage containers have been emptied, please remove the container from the curb before 7:00 am the following morning after the day of pickup. Garbage containers shall not be left out by the roadway or curb.

Items accepted with Household Trash on your normal pickup day may include paint cans.  Please note paint cans will only be accepted with the lid off and if the paint is completely dry (If not, fill with sand or kitty litter and place next to curb).  Do not put yard trash or construction debris in the roll cart. 

If you have “Special Items” or "Bulk Items" such as small appliances, mattresses, small furniture,  etc., you must call Tyler Sanitation to arrange a special pickup.  All Bulk Item collection will be provided on an "on-call basis" for Irmo Residents (Not Landlords).  Please note this service does NOT include the following: 

  • Total House Emptying
  • Debris Removal (or Construction Debris)
  • Eviction
  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Microwave Ovens
  • Electronics
  • Any other items requiring special handling
Tyler Sanitation services the Irmo community five days a week (Please note that Federal Holidays may disrupt the schedule).  There are factors that can delay the pickup of household garbage and can possibly lead to garbage collection occurring the following day.

Below are some reasons your household garbage may not be collected if any of the following items are in the roll cart:

  • Yard Waste
  • Construction Debris
  • Paint, Oil, or Other Hazardous Waste
  • Gas Tanks, Tires, or Other Car Parts
Household Trash is collected either on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday depending on where you live in the town.  Your Yard Trash will be picked up on Monday.  If your garbage is not collected on your scheduled day, we encourage you to contact Tylers Sanitation directly.
