Effective Monday, January 5, City of Atlanta residents' trash, recycling and leaf-and-limb pick ups will change.

Here are the details from Mayor Shirley Franklin's office:

  • Weekly garbage collection will continue, but on a four (4) day schedule

  • Recycling and Yard Waste collection will change from weekly to every other week, on the customer’s scheduled collection day, per the attached calendar.

  • Friday pickups are being absorbed within the four (4) day schedule. There are approximately 20,000 customers who currently receive Friday pick up service. A separate notice will be delivered to these customers indicating their new pick up day.

  • There are approximately 5,000 customers who receive back yard pick up service. Their pick up service may or may not change depending upon their address. These customers will receive a separate notice if there are any changes to their scheduled pick up service.

For more information, contact the Public Works Customer Service Call Center at (404) 330-6333. It's open Monday-Thursday, 8:15 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. You can also reach them via email.
