Residential Garbage

The Department of Sanitation provides residential garbage collection to all single-family residences in good standing with Conway Corporation utilities. This service includes one 96-gallon green curbside garbage cart with weekly collection. Curbside collection occurs Tuesdays through Fridays.

Garbage collection is a required utility for all residential accounts within the City of Conway. A fee of $17.00 plus tax is included in the resident’s monthly Conway Corporation billing. A residential account with Conway Corporation must be active before collection can begin.

With your utility garbage collection, residential recycling, and yard waste services are available at no additional charge.

Do you live outside the Conway city limits? If so, contact your city or county government offices for collection requirements and processes. The Department of Sanitation provides collection services only within the Conway city limits.

  • Curbside carts must be placed on a flat surface no less than 3-feet from all obstacles (e.g. other carts, utility poles, mailboxes, vehicles, holiday décor, etc.) and within 2-feet of the curb.
  • Place the cart where it opens toward the curb/street and the handle is toward the home.
  • Any garbage placed outside of the green cart will not be collected curbside.
