City of Port Wentworth

Residential household garbage is collected one time per week.

Please click here for a street listing per service day.

All single-family residents will receive a 96-gallon green garbage cart with a blue lid, which will be serviced one time per week. Please place all household garbage in your cart and place it curbside on collection day. Other guidelines to follow:

  • Place your green garbage cart for collection adjacent to, but not in, the street by 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled pickup days. It is important to always have the cart facing the street (i.e. the handles are located on the cart side closest to your residence).
  • Each 96-gallon garbage cart is equipped with an easy open-and-close lid and wheels for easy movement to the curb.
  • All garbage items placed in the carts should not extend above the rim.
  • Paper bags, cardboard boxes, recycle bins and oil drums cannot be used as garbage containers. You must use the cart.
  • Used oil, paints, insecticides, chemicals, automotive parts, batteries, tires, medical waste including hypodermic needles and syringes, and hazardous waste will not be collected.

If you experience a “missed pickup” on your collection day, or have any questions, please report a problem through TracEz. You will be able to follow/monitor the progress of your request online through TracEZ.
