Wednesday's the Day for New Trash Service

DeKalb County replaces Advanced Disposal as the City's provider of sanitation services starting with citywide trash collection TOMORROW (Wednesday, Feb. 5). Henceforth, collection will take place each Wednesday for all City residents. 

-- Please take time to read the packet of information attached to the county's green trash can. It will answer all or most of your questions regarding pickup. The packet includes a welcome letter and information about services.(The letter also has been provided in Spanish, Korean and Bengali.) 

-- All trash, recycling and yard waste will be picked up by the county on Wednesdays. The 95-gallon green trash can is standard for all City residents and is for garbage ONLY. 

-- The gray/blue Advanced recycling cans and bins will continue to be used for recycling until county cans are issued to replace them. This will not occur for several weeks. In the interim, the county will pick up recycling from the Advanced cans and bins.

-- For questions, contact the county at (404) 294-2900 or
