The Sanitation Department provides weekly curbside trash collection and yard waste pick up to city residents. If you reside within the city limits of Powder Springs, this service is required. (Refer to City Code of Ordinances, Chapter 11 Section 43). In addition, no outside private collectors are allowed to operate in the city. (Refer to City Code of Ordinances Chapter 11 Section 63).
For on-site payments for sanitation or establishing sanitation service, residents should go to the Powder Springs Police Department, 1114 Richard D. Sailors Parkway. Once the deposit has been paid, City Hall will generate a work order for the Sanitation Department to deliver your cart. This process usually takes 1 to 3 working days depending on workload, holidays, etc. Garbage charges will appear on your quarterly bill.
In the event that a 90 gallon container is not sufficient for your volume of trash, you may request a 2nd cart. The applicable fees for this are an additional $60 cart deposit and an additional $5 charge on your quarterly garbage bill.
