The Sanitation Division, or Solid Waste Department, began operating in January of 2004 and provides Millersville with city wide residential garbage collection. Prior to the program, the city was served by more than a dozen private collectors with a wide range of fees and schedules. The city’s program was so successful that it won the Award of Excellence from the Greater Nashville Regional Council in its first year of operation.
Much of the trash collected in the city is picked up using a modern “Automated Collection Truck”. A mechanical arm grabs the container and empties it into the truck. This automation plays a major role in keeping fees low. To help insure efficient operation, please see the Policies and Procedures page of the website. You will also find a “Question and Answer” section on the same page that may help with some of your questions.
