Collection Rules

Sherman citizens receive weekly trash service. Residents are given a collection cart of approximately 100-gallon size. All residential customers should place their trash inside the cart for collection on their scheduled day. Rules for collection and charges for service are as follows:

  • All trash must be placed inside the cart and the lid must be closed completely.
  • All loose trash must be bagged.
  • Do not place trash on the lid nor protruding from beneath the lid.
  • Brush must be trimmed to a length of three feet or less and placed inside the cart with the lid closed.
  • Carts must be placed at curbside unless other locations are approved.
  • Carts must not remain at curb on non collection days.
  • Carts must be ready for collection at 7:00 am on collection day.
  • The serial number on the cart shall face the street.
  • Yard trimmings must be placed in the cart.
