Yard Debris and Garbage Collection
Solid Waste Collection is now being provided by Waste Pro. If you should have any questions about your new garbage day or any of the new services, please contact the Community Services Department at 404-669-2120 or see the Solid Waste Collection Plan (PDF) and FAQ’s (PDF).
Please report all street lights that are in need of repair to the Public Services Department at 404-669-2120 or you can contact Georgia Power’s Trouble Department at 888-660-5890 to report an "Outdoor Lighting Problem". Be prepared to give specific details (i.e. pole number, closest address or cross street) regarding the location of the pole so it can be repaired in a timely manner.

Clean and Green Fee
The Clean and Green Fee is a solid waste fee that each commercial/business vendor with a water account pays to the City. This fee is for litter, trash and yard debris that is picked up by the City on a weekly basis. The City outsources its commercial dumpster business through a contractual agreement with a private hauler. The hauler picks up garbage, household garbage and office materials that are contained in the dumpster, but does not pick up yard debris or litter.
The City has established the Clean and Green Fee at $11.00 per month. Evaluating the cost of services delivered and reviewing the invoices from our past hauler determined the cost for this service.
