The brown YardCart, designed like a regular garbage cart, holds grass clippings and other loose yard debris so automated trucks can pick it up at the curb. The YardCarts save money and control costs, make our Rock Hill streets more attractive, and keep the storm drain system clear of debris.
YardCarts should be placed curbside with garbage and recycling on your normal collection day no later than 6:30 AM.
The YardCart program is voluntary. If you choose not to use the YardCart, you will be responsible for either composting or properly disposing of your yard waste. Remember, state law prohibits yard waste from being disposed of in landfills, so it cannot be put in your regular garbage cart for pick up.
To receive the YardCart service:
- Order a YardCart by submitting an Online Service Request or call 803-326-3891.
The current cost of a YardCart is $50. You may choose to be billed in ONE payment, or TEN monthly payments of $5.00. Additional carts can be purchased for a one time fee of $25.00.

- Yard waste that is not in the YardCart will no longer be collected loose at the curb. However, during November through January, the City will continue to pick up leaves at the curb every other week in all neighborhoods. Leaves may be placed in the YardCart for weekly collection anytime of the year.
We hope you will choose the convenience of the YardCart program and help us continue to recycle yard waste to keep Rock Hill streets – and our storm drains – clean!
