From March 30 through April 10, the city of Kingsport is holding its annual spring clean-up service for residents. Residents can place extra items on the curb for garbage crews to haul away at no extra charge. The city encourages residents to clean up and clean out their garages and basements. Every resident will receive two garbage and recycling pick-ups and one yardwaste/trash pick-up during the two-week period.

 The city will pick-up:


Tires (only 4 per household and off the rim)


Small amount of building materials (drywall, carpet, scrap lumber)

Yard debris


Bagged grass

Bagged or loose leaves


General junk


The city will not pick-up:



Hazardous material

Propane tanks

Tires on rims

Contractor generated building materials

Contractor generated tree debris


During the clean-up weeks, the city will accept items outside the garbage can. A leaf truck will also run during this time. While the spring clean-up service is free for residents, the city will still charge for contractor-generated waste and tree debris during these weeks.

Computer items, such as monitors, keyboards and hard drives, can be taken to the Sullivan County Transfer Station on Brookside Drive.
