The Public Works Department is responsible for the provision of sanitation services and maintenance of the Town's parks and other public grounds. The sanitation services include the collection of household garbage, recyclable materials, yard trash and bulk items. If you are a new resident please contact the Town of Springdale to obtain a Sanitation Services Agreement, linked below. Curbside household garbage is collected on Mondays, recyclable materials are collected on Tuesdays and yard waste is collected on Wednesdays, all are funded through property tax revenues. Containers should be placed for collection no later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection. The only residential sanitation services that require additional fees are the collection of bulk items and excessive amounts of yard trash. 

Below you will find links to our sanitation services guidelines, recycling guide and new service agreement form.

Most of these items not picked up by Springdale are accepted by Lexington County at special recycling collection events. 2019 Lexington County Recycling Drop-Off Event Schedule

Stormwater Complaint Form

Stormwater Inspection Notification

Dear Springdale Residents:

Starting next week, the teams you see in the field are on official business for the Town of Springdale during the hours of 8:00am and 8:00pm seven days a week. These teams are contractors for the Town and will be inventorying the Town’s stormwater system. Portions of the Town’s stormwater system can only be accessed by crossing private property. Where our crews need to cross your property, we greatly appreciate your support and patience allowing them access.

What is the stormwater system? The stormwater system is a network of inlets, pipes, ditches, and outlets designed to carry stormwater runoff to streams. The graphic below is a simple stormwater system network.

Why is the Town inventorying the stormwater system? The Town is responsible for maintaining the stormwater system draining Town and County roads and Town-owned properties. This stormwater inventory project will help the Town and County better maintain the Town’s inlets, pipes, ditches, and outlets.

For any questions, please contact Springdale Town Hall at 794-0408.
