Solid Waste Department

We apologize for the inconvenience, but at this time our garbage trucks have had some mechanical issues, as well as shortage on personnel. Please be patient and leave your garbage cans at the end of the road for the rest of the week or until picked up. We are currently a day and a half behind on every route and we apologize for this delay.

Thank you,

Scott County Board of Supervisors

As part of Scott County’s improved residential solid waste collection program, trash cans are being delivered to residents. If you have not received a trash can at this time, please contact our office so we can have you included in supplemental distribution rounds. The use of these trash cans will be required for continued solid waste collection going forward.

Effective January 1, 2022, solid waste collection fees will be $180 per year, billed quarterly at a rate of $45. If you pre-paid for a full year, you will not be charged until July of 2022.
