Trash Pick-up Day Changes to Monday as of August 1

Jun 30 2011

The Department of Public Works continues to improve our service delivery! Effective August 1, 2011,  we will begin citywide quadrant based weekly collection service for household garbage, recycling, and yard waste.  Quadrant based service will allow for concentrated efforts in a given area, reduced carbon emissions and reduced missed pickups.
The new quadrant based service will also provide for additional services such as residential street sweeping in most areas, scheduled bulk waste pick-up and concentrated solid waste education and enforcement.
Household garbage, recycling, and yard trimmings will continue to be collected per quadrant boundaries of the city as follows (also see this flyer):
·         MONDAY - Northeast: North: City Limits. East: City Limits. South: Decatur Street/Dekalb Avenue. West: Northside Drive
