South Fulton Residents Required to Have Garbage Service by February 1, 2019
Every house in the City of South Fulton is now required to have its own Garbage Collection service. A list of city-authorized vendors has been sent to every home, with a grace-period running through January 31, 2019 for residents to establish service with a city-approved vendor. Renters must negotiate with their landlords on who will pay for the service. However, it is the land owner's responsibility to obtain & maintain service. Beginning February 1, those without service could face fines up to $1,000; and a service provider will be assigned to them by the City.

New vendors are being added each week. Before cancelling your current service, contact City Purchasing Manager Anthony Kerr to see if your vendor has been added.
The list above details which city Council District each company operates within. Though it should be noted, these companies do not operate throughout an entire district. With the exception of Waste Industries, each company only operates in select neighborhoods. If your Homeowner's Association bargains collectively to have all your neighbors sign up with a single provider, you may be able to induce providers from other districts to service your neighborhood AND negotiate a lower rate with them than advertised.
Waste Industries is South Fulton's only citywide provider. Waste Industries bills quarterly at $59.85 for trash service, $85.05 for trash & recycling. They have waived can delivery fees for new service. Their full price list is as follows.
The city has established a new 24/7 Public Works Hotline to address concerns about Sanitation or Ilegal Dumping.
NEW 24/7 PUBLIC WORKS HOTLINE
Garbage Collection • Street Paving/Potholes • Illegal Dumping • Trees in Right of Way/Mowing
Callers to the Hotline may also make complaints or receive information about street pavings & potholes, trimming of trees or mowing of lawns in the right-of-ways, and other responsibilities of South Fulton's Public Works Department. Please review the street repaving schedule below.
How Did We Get Here & What Comes Next?
Those who paying close attention to South Fulton's transition to cityhood remember earlier plans to have one, citywide service that included recycling & bulk trash collection, all included in homeowner's property tax bills. So what happened? Learn more at the link below.
