A couple of commission meetings back, the commission voted to close city offices on Friday, July 5th at the recommendation of City Manager Peggy Merriss. This change to the trash pickup schedule, I’m guessing, is a result of that decision. It’s also mentioned on The Decatur Minute blog. Here’s a note sent around by the city’s Lena Stevens that summarizes things nicely…
The schedule for trash, recycling, and yard waste pick up has been changed for the July 4th Holiday. If your normal services are scheduled on either Thursday, July 4th or Friday, July 5th, your pick up date has been moved to Wednesday, July 3rd. If you are unsure of your normal service date, you may check our online collection schedule map.
Set out time will remain the same. Please have all garbage, trash, recyclables, or yard trimmings set out for collection by 7:30am.
Please help spread the word to make sure your friends and neighbors know about the change. Questions about waste collection or recycling can be directed to the Public Works Department, 404-377-5571, or send an e-mail to Sean Woodson, Sanitation Superintendent at [email protected].
