City Parks and Community Center
There are four city parks in Berry Hill: Azalea Park, Columbine Park, East Iris Park and Rosedale Park. Each park has a play area for children. Azalea Park also has a large picnic shelter, which may be reserved.

The City also has a community center located adjacent to the City Hall parking lot at 404 East Iris Drive, which may be reserved for private events.

Reserving the Azalea Park Shelter or Community Center
The Azalea Park picnic shelter and the Berry Hill Community Center (located at 404 East Iris Drive near City Hall) may be reserved for noncommercial purposes. There are six large picnic tables at Azalea Park. There is seating for approximately 30 people in the main room of the Community Center. Berry Hill residents and businesses may reserve on a first come/first served basis up to one year in advance. Nonresidents may reserve on a first come/first served basis up to two months in advance. There is no charge for the using the park shelter if you follow the rules and clean up/leave the facility in acceptable condition after your event. For Community Center use, a $100 deposit must be paid to the City by three days prior to use, and it will be returned if all rules are followed and the facility is cleaned up and left in acceptable condition after use. To reserve, call City Hall at (615) 292-5531.

Trash Collection/Recycling
  • The City, through its contractor,  Red River Waste Solutions,provides trash and recyclable collection to all single and two-family residences each Wednesday. Pickups may begin as early as 7 a.m., so please make sure your trash and recyclables are put out before then.
  • The City Has provided a 32 gallon blue recycling can to each residence on the City’s trash collection list. If you do not want a recycling can for your residence, please call us at 615-292-5531 to let us know. The cans remain the property of the City and should be used only for recycling to be collected in Berry Hill. Residents must provide their own lidded metal, plastic or fiberglass trash receptacles with a capacity of 45 gallons or less. 
  • Paper, plastic and recyclable metal may be mixed together loose--not bagged-and placed in the provided recycling c. 
  • Glass bottles and jars must be put in regular garbage, not in recycling. Red River Waste Solutions does not recycle glass.
  • Cardboard boxes should be broken down and may be placed beside the recycling can (you may place them inside if there is room). Do not place them in your regular trash receptacles. Other items not allowed in regular trash receptacles are yard waste and electronic waste.
  • Trash should be placed in plastic bags, tied shut and placed in your lidded trash receptacle (which residents must provide) with capacity of 45 gallons or less. You may have up to three trash receptacles of 45 gallons or less for regular trash. Any other trash may not be collected.
  •    
  • Both trash and recycling receptacles may be left at your back door, if accessible to Red River employees, or at the street for collection. Leave them out on Tuesday night or before 7 a.m. on Wednesday. Do not leave them behind locked gates, inside enclosures or in area where pets are present on collection days.
  • If you are moving out of Berry Hill, please call City Hall at 615-292-5531 to pick up the recycling can or else leave it behind for the new residents.

Bulk Pickup
Residents who are receiving regular residential trash collection may call City Hall at 615-292-5531 to schedule a bulk trash pick-up, in advance, for the next regular trash pick-up day. Due to environmental restrictions, the following cannot be taken: paint, oil, other hazardous liquids or solids, tire, batteries, computers, computer monitors and refrigerators, freezers and air-conditioners (unless Freon-free certificates are provided). They also cannot pick up any medium to large-sized wood or wood with nails.

Leaf Collection

The Berry Hill Public Works Department provides fall leaf collection for city residents and businesses. Leaves should be raked to the edge of the street or drainage ditch, but not put in the ditch. Public Works will pick them up with the city’s leaf vacuum. It is not available on request.

Chipper Service
Beginning the 24th of each month, Public Works runs chipper routes to collect brush and limbs in the city and continues until all streets in the city have been covered. While extra routes may occasionally be run following storms, chipper service is generally limited to the last week of the month and is not available on request. Brush and limbs may be left at the edge of the street but not mixed with leaves or placed in the drainage ditch. Public Works cannot dispose of whole trees, logs, or limbs with a diameter greater than nine inches or a length shorter than two feet because they will not go through the chipper. No milled lumber may be chipped. Hired tree cutters and trimmers must remove all materials they cut. Leaves and brush should only be left on your own property for pickup. Dumping them on city property, highway department right of way or vacant lots owned by others (including the ends of street cul de sacs) violates litter laws.

Street Sweeping
City streets are swept on or about the 1st of each month by Sweeping Corporation of America.
