As spring approaches, many Greenwood County residents will begin working in the yard, cleaning up and clearing out the bushes and other overgrowth.

As such, Greenwood County public works director Donna Sightler recently reminded residents there are certain parameters of the county’s yard waste pickup services.
The county picks up yard waste in the unincorporated areas of the county. The county does not run regular routes to pickup the yard debris, so residents are asked to call 864-942-8662 to put in a work request.
“It is based on the work requests, the work order,” Sightler said. “We don’t have specific, everyday routes that we follow. So, what we would request that the homeowner do is call our yard waste pickup line. Once they call in, they will be directed to leave their name, phone number and address, then that would give us a work request.”
