Family In Yard With Trash Truck in Background

Residential Trash Service Schedule Changing For Several Neighborhoods

Released February 26, 2021 09:40 AM

Residents in nine Alpharetta neighborhoods will see the weekly schedule for collection of their trash, recyclables, and yard waste change beginning the week of March 15.  The change is being made as Republic Services, the City of Alpharetta’s waste services provider, removes the locations from their regular route and begins servicing them with a separate, smaller vehicle.

“Several neighborhoods in Downtown Alpharetta have been developed with narrow streets and wide sidewalks to create a pedestrian-focused environment that places less emphasis on automobiles,” said James Drinkard, Alpharetta’s Assistant City Administrator.  “That design poses challenges for the standard trash and recycling trucks that are used to serve the suburban, cul-de-sac neighborhoods that are the predominate form in the community.  To better serve our citizens in the more compact neighborhoods, Republic will shift to using a much smaller vehicle in those areas.”

The impacted neighborhoods are:

   *  Avalon
   *  Canton Street Commons
   *  East of Main (excluding Belle Isle Drive)
   *  Folia Old Milton
   *  Foundry
   *  Georgia at the Garden District
   *  Rowes Downtown
   *  The Maxwell
   *  Voysey

Seventeen “stand alone” addresses will also be impacted.
