Brush Line
Due to the overwhelming
amount  of brush and yard  debris out for pickup throughout the City, we are implementing an every other week pickup schedule.  The grabber trucks can only pick up two grabs at each residence. See schedule and Hotline information.

  • James Williams of Eastman Chemicals
  • Peggy Gilliam of BAE Systems
  • James Bear, Kevin Cole, and John Clevlar of Quebcor
  • Claude Riner of Weyerhaeuser
  • Andrew Pullen of AFG

Each of these area businesses provided trucks and these drivers to help in our mission to clean up Kingsport!
