To keep Fountain Inn beautiful once a year, our Public Works team sets aside a whole month of May to pick up items that our sanitation team would not usually collect!

Please schedule your pick-up ahead of time and have your items by the curb at least 3 feet from any mailboxes, cars, etc. 

Every house may receive one pick-up during Spring Cleaning.

His positive attitude and hard work were quickly noticed, and he was promoted to Meter Reader. Neal is now responsible for collecting information from over 10,000 meters every month. His hard work and dedication make the City of Fountain Inn the best place to live, work, and play.
