Cherokee Park Frequently Asked Questions

Trash Collection

Occurs every Wednesday in Cherokee Park.  Place the cart at least 3 feet from any stationary object such as a mailbox or another cart.  Items that are placed outside the trash cart or in other containers will not be picked up. Please remove your cart from the street by 7:00 p.m. on pick-up day.

One trash can is allotted per house. You can request an additional bin by calling 615-862-5000. Residential properties are capped at two trash bins. Additional recycling bins are provided at no cost. (see below).


Curbside recycling service ("Curby") in Cherokee Park occurs on the second Wednesday of each month. Recyclables go in the green cart (non-recylable garbage goes in the brown carts).  Place your cart with the arrow on the lid pointing toward the street. Acceptable items are: plastic bottles labeled 1 - 7, dairy containers (margarine, yogurt, sour cream, etc. labeled 1 – 7), mixed paper (newspaper, magazines, junk mail, etc.), cardboard, aluminum cans, tin cans, and empty aerosol cans.  

Please don't place the following items in your green Curby carts: glass, trash, Styrofoam, plastic bags/wraps, black plastic, clamshells (fast food take out), film, toys, or wraps, large plastic items, pesticides, herbicides, motor oil containers, solvents, paint, or microwave containers.
