Public Works Department

The Public Works Department is critical to the successful operation of the Town of Dandridge.  Encompassing multiple departments: Building and Grounds; Highways and Streets; City Garage; Sanitation, all citizens benefit from their hard work.




Each household is provided a garbage container.  Each container has a serial number and is assigned to a specific address.  The container is to remain at the assigned address. The truck picking up the trash container has an automated arm, which reaches out to pick up the container, empties it, and returns it to its specified location. In order for any trash container to be emptied, it must be placed correctly at curbside.  Drivers do not exit the vehicle to adjust containers. For more information or to order an additional can please visit the Town of Dandridge website at


(Note: Curbside pickup items must be at roadside by 7:00 a.m. the day of service)
