Street & Sanitation
The City of Marion STREETS Department is comprised of a group of men who care for the city's tree-lined streets and who work to keep the City of Marion looking its absolute best for its citizens and visitors. The team cares for the city's trees, garnering many Palmetto Pride Tree Grants which supply the city with free trees to continue its beautiful green canopy for years to come.
Additionally, the City of Marion STREETS Department works with the city's Garden Clubs to plant and maintain flower and shrubbery beds, enhancing the streets and providing beauty throughout the seasons in Marion. The STREETS department crew also decorates the city for its numerous Festivals, helping to showcase the city at Christmas, in Spring and beyond.
The City of Marion SANITATION crew works hard to keep the CIty looking its best! In addition to the work performed by the City's team members, American Waste Systems helps to maintain a healthy environment for the residents of Marion through the curbside collection of Household Waste on a weekly basis.
