All paper to be shredded must be bagged or boxed, and each person is limited to three large trash bags or three small boxes of paper. Four shredding trucks will be onsite and paper will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until they are full.

City residents and businesses can also drop off the following items for free during this special event: TVs, computer monitors, keyboards, mice, wires, circuit boards, CPUs, scanners and printers. There is a strict limit of 10 electronic items per person. 

Christmas Tree RECYCLING

For the convenience of city residents, trees can be placed at the curb for collection on regularly scheduled pick-up days. All trees must be free of debris such as ornaments, tinsel, ribbons, and lights. Trees are ground into mulch at Twin Chimneys Landfill.  

Curbside pick-up within the city limits will continue for as long as needed.


Mulch is available at Twin Chimneys Landfill. Call the Twin Chimneys Landfill at (864) 243-9672 for more information. The Greenville County website also has more information about mulch.


Holiday string lights and extension cords can NOT be placed inside of your recycling carts or dropped off at recycling centers. However, local metal recyclers will accept them and scrap them for the copper. Please contact local metal recyclers in your area.


All holiday boxes, tissue paper, and wrapping paper (except foil-lined) can be recycled at the curb and at the following locations:

  • Stone Avenue Recycling Center (800 East Stone Avenue)
  • North Greenville Recycling Center (514 Rutherford Road)
