Junk and Bulky Waste Collection

General Information


Junk and bulky items are only collected during the months of April and October of each year. There are no collection districts designated for this service and it is not necessary to call for this service.

Once a month, Springfield residents may dispose of  one bulky waste item, one junk item or one bag of junk at the Public Works Department facility. You must register inside the office before you are allowed to dispose of your item.

You may also take your waste to the Robertson County Solid Waste & Recycling. The landfill and recycling centers are operated by the county, not the city. The Robertson County Solid Waste & Recycling Center may be contacted by calling 615-384-0683.

Anyone placing junk at the curbside other than during the months of April and October may be subject to a possible fine and subject to a summons to court.
