Citywide Clean Up Events

The City of Bluffton sponsors two clean up events each year: one in the spring and another in the fall. Each event includes both a citywide clean up day and a day where residents can set out unlimited bagged trash on their normal trash pick up day.

2024 Spring Clean Up Event Dates:
  • Citywide Clean Up is Saturday, May 11th from 8 am to noon.
  • Residential Unlimited BAGGED trash week is scheduled for May 6th, 7th, and 8th.
Additional information for the clean up events:
  • It is important to have trash out by 5:30am on your normal garbage day because Republic Services will have additional trucks running the routes. This service is for additional bagged trash only.
  • On May 11th, city residents may use the dumpsters placed at the Wastewater Treatment Facility, 702 N Main Street, to dispose of extra trash and bulk items.
  • We recommend all yard waste be taken out to the compost site on State Road 124 East.
  • Carpet will be accepted if they are cut into 4 foot pieces and bundled up.
  • Unauthorized or improper disposal of items will result in a citation. Driver’s license may be required.
  • Items not accepted:
    • hazardous waste materials
    • tires
