During Reside With Pride, the Public Works Department of the City of Powder Springs provides a special collection service to its sanitation customers residing within the city limits of Powder Springs.

Please watch for flyers to be attached to your garbage carts 1-2 weeks prior to Reside With Pride.

Collection Procedures
  • The city will collect your extra trash and bulk items on your regular trash collection day of the Reside With Pride week at no additional cost.
  • Items must be placed at the curb no later than 7 a.m. of your regular trash collection day. Due to the large volumes of trash this week, we will only have time for 1 pass down your street.
  • Personal trash containers will be discarded. If you have trash to be picked up and it is placed in a personal container, we will assume you want to dispose of the container as well. The only containers that will be left at the residence will be the city issued 90 gallon carts.
  • We will not unload items from truck beds, vehicle trunks, or trailers.
  • Appliances are limited to 2 per household. Appliances must also be free of liquids and food products. We ask that you remove any doors for the safety of children.
