Although the City's new sanitation contract with DeKalb County does not begin until February, the county will begin delivering roll carts and welcome packets this week (Jan. 13), continuing through the end of January. A total of about 2,500 roll carts will be delivered. The welcome packets are important for residents to read, as they explain enhancements to services and new procedures.

Please note: The old cans provided by Advanced Disposal Services are to be used through the end of January. Do not put out the new county cans until Wednesday, Feb. 5, the date of the first pickup. Drivers of the county's trucks have begun familiarizing themselves with City routes, but they will not be picking up until Feb. 5. Curbside pickup of household trash and recyclables will be done on the same day (Wednesday) starting in February.
