As a result of two successful hiring events, DPW is placing more crews on routes and projects continued increases in crews over the coming weeks to ensure the timely collection of yard trimmings. DPW continues to collect trash and recycling in a timely manner and is addressing any missed collections in those areas quickly once identified. PLEASE LEAVE ITEMS CURBSIDE AS CREWS CONTINUE TO COLLECT YARD TRIMMINGS. For more information regarding DPW collection efforts, visit www.atlantaga.gov/publicworks.
