Planning some yard work? Consider using paper bags rather than plastic for leaves & grass clippings. They're compostable and better for the environment. Together with Mecklenburg County, the Town of Matthews is giving out FREE brown lawn and leaf bags at Matthews Public Works located at 1600 Tank Town Road in Matthews. Hours for pick up are 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. First come first served. Limit of 10 bags per resident. 

* New trash can colors:

As of May 26, 2017 trash cans that are replaced or provided to new residences will be blue with a black lid, instead of the current blue. This is a result of Republic Services new company standard. Republic will continue to service the blue cans for trash also.
