City of Newnan residents will see new pickup days for garbage and yard debris starting March 4.
Waste Industries Inc., which renewed its contract with the city, has mailed out flyers to all residents showing city residents' new days for pickup.
The sanitation company will pick up household garbage and items for recycling. The city will take over yard debris and bulk waste pickup.
Rates will remain the same as they have in the past. The big difference is that all debris, yard waste, recycling and household garbage will be picked up on the same day. In previous years, those pickups varied on the day of the week.
The city has been split into various zones and all garbage pickup will be conducted Monday through Thursday.
The new schedule begins March 4.
For yard debris and bulk waste, the city has a list of banned/ prohibited items:
• Tires
• Batteries
• Paint thinner
• Motor Oil
• Gasoline
• Paint or paint cans (excluding empty paint cans or paint cans filled with absorbents to dry out the paint)
• Bulky items such as appliances containing chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants or Freon
Placement guidelines are:
• Don’t block sidewalks or the street when setting out yard debris and bulk waste items.
• Take care when setting out yard debris so that it does not block drains or otherwise wash into a storm drain and ultimately into a creek or stream.
Anyone with questions regarding yard debris and bulk waste service should contact the City of Newnan directly at 770-253-0237 or visit www.ci.newnan.ga.us .
Anyone with questions regarding regular garbage and recycling services and billing should contact Waste Industries at 770-474-9273 or visit www.wasteindustries.com .
