Household garbage pickup is divided into two schedules: Monday and
Tuesday pickups and Wednesday or Thursday pickups. Your neighbors can tell you which day
is designated for your neighborhood. Yard trimmings are picked up twice a month. If
your household garbage is picked up on either Monday or Tuesday, your yard trimmings will
be picked up during the first and third week of each month. If your household garbage is
collected on either Wednesday or Thursday, your yard trimmings will be collected on the
second and fourth week of each month. For more specific information on days and times, and
other questions regarding this matter, call: (404) 330-6254.
