City of Aiken Government Offices

The 7 departments (and respective divisions) that make up your City government strive to make the City of Aiken a safe, healthy, and fulfilling place to live, work and play, by providing vital services to the community. From enjoying recreational and instructional activities and scenic parks to receiving social services and peace officer protection, community members interact with the City of Aiken everyday.

City Holiday Schedule

Please note: Regular residential garbage, yard debris and recycling collection service will NOT occur on holidays. The rule of thumb is that if a holiday falls on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday then garbage, recycling & yard debris collection will be delayed one day starting with the day of the holiday. If a holiday falls on Friday then there is no change in service.
