DeKalb County is replacing our smaller residential refuse carts with a 95 gallon version. This will make it easier for residents to throw things away without having to pile additional trash outside of the container. The 95 gallon version allows the county to use the single-operator/driver collection truck and reduces risk of injury to the collector.
Due to their size and our neighborhood's topography, residents may find it difficult to maneuver these cans to the curb. Jeff Rader, Commissioner, District 2, DeKalb County, suggests that residents make any concerns known to the Thurmond Administration by clicking here. Also share your concerns to all members of the BOC by clicking here as well as apply for backyard pickup by clicking here since that is the only alternative available.
