Am I allowed to put a dumpster in the street right of way?

We highly recommend not placing your dumpster in the right of way unless there is no alternative. In order to encroach in the right of way, you need to first apply for a Right of Way Encroachment Permit. You must complete the application and submit it with a drawing of how you will encroach the right of way. The application fee is $65. Your application will be reviewed within 1-2 days, depending on the permit supervisor’s schedule.

Please bring your documents and payment (cash or check) to 120 West Dougherty Street (lower level), Athens, GA. Call us at 706-613-3440 if you have any questions.
