The Tennessee Solid Waste Management Act of 1991 mandated sweeping changes in the way all counties in Tennessee, including Hickman, manage their solid waste activities. This Act was in response to new, more stringent environmental legislation enacted by Congress in an effort to further keep our environment clean and safe. The plan developed for Hickman County as adopted by the Hickman County Commission in 1995, and it's components are overseen by a Committee appointed by the Commission, through the Solid Waste Director. Trash may be disposed of at either of two permanent Convenience Centers or at a stop of the Roving Convenience Center. Recyclable materials is also collected at these sites. For information on specific types of trash, or special handling, contact the Solid Waste Director. For information on billing, contact the Solid Waste Billing Office at 931-729-6155.
