FLORENCE, SC – The City of Florence plans to implement new route changes for weekly
Sanitation services beginning the week of
April 19, 2021. Over the past 30 years, the city has
maintained the same garbage collection routes and added residential units as they were
constructed and/or annexed to existing collection routes. To increase efficiency and prepare for
future growth of our City, the City of Florence has recently evaluated the current sanitation
routes and made changes to accommodate the collection of household residential garbage,
recycling materials and yard waste. Every route will have changes, but not all households will
be impacted by those changes.

For those households with route changes, the new collection assignments will begin on
Monday, April 19, 2021. Maps and other details will be provided at
and on various city social media outlets. We encourage customers to visit the City of Florence
website and use the interactive map provided to verify your collection days. For questions
regarding the pending route changes, please contact the Public Works Department at (843)
