Spring Cleanup Week- April 20th-24th, 2020


During this week, residents are allowed to place an unlimited amount of trash bags at the curb on their regular trash pickup days at no additional cost. Please place trash out for collection before 7:00am on your collection day.

If residents have larger items to be hauled, they may also be placed at the curb during the week without calling to arrange for pick-up. However, standard special haul minimum charge of $25.00 for the first four cubic yards and $4.20 each additional cubic yard will apply.

Building materials, tires and liquids will not be accepted at curbside. If you have yard waste for disposal, please call the Engineering and Public Works Department at 592-3343 for normal pick-up.

Dumpsters will be available at the service garage, 387 W. State St., for scrap metal and trash. Construction debris will not be accepted. Residents may deposit large items and scrap metal in these containers between the hours of 7:30AM and 7PM, Monday through Friday, without charge. Please come with photo ID or copy of your utility bill showing your address to verify that you are a resident of Athens.

For additional questions, please contact David Riggs, PE, Director of Development and Code Enforcement at 592-3306.
