The City of Abbeville's Public Works Department is responsible for sanitation services, including residential and commercial garbage collection .
At this time, the department has two boom trucks running five routes per week, picking up all street side trash and transporting it to the proper destination of the County or City landfills. We also have one residential garbage truck running five routes a week, picking up all bagged garbage that is placed out on the street. The City of Abbeville's Public Works Department has one of the most efficient street side trash and garbage pickup for our citizens.
The Public Works Department also operates one commercial garbage truck which operates five days per week. This truck is responsible for the collection of one hundred garbage bins for our local businesses.
Beginning March 2011, the City offers blue recycle bins to residential home owners. Recyclables will be collected every Wednesday. Renters can purchase blue bins at the Public Utilities office at 306 Cambridge Street for $6.00 per each bin.
In our street paving program, a number of streets have been resurfaced and, under the Rocking Program, we will be resurfacing many more in the near future.
As we look to the future, we realize there will be constant need for a diligent work force. The employees of the Public Works Department are eager and ready to meet these challenges.
The Public Works Department is located at 706 Branch Street in Abbeville. If you have any questions or concerns regarding sanitation or streets, please contact this department at (864) 366-4636.
