Garbage decals (stickers) are required on all trash cans (except for roll-carts distributed by the Athens-Clarke County Solid Waste Department) and are color coded to indicate your service level.
Overflow decals are required on all trash bags outside of the trash can. Overflow decals can be purchased at the Solid Waste Department office (725 Hancock Industrial Way) or at the water business office (124 E. Hancock Avenue) for $2 each.
Garbage left outside of the can will not be collected unless it is bagged and tagged with an overflow decal.
Curbside trash cans and carts are only allowed to be on the curb from 6:00 PM the day before scheduled collection until 12:00 PM (noon) the day after collection.
