Dumpster Service

Trash TruckProgram Basics

Multiple family dwellings of five units or more are eligible for dumpster service instead of having separate trash containers for each unit. Dumpsters are 2 1/2 cubic yard in size. Customers may choose between one to six days per week for collection service. In addition, customers may order additional dumpsters. Call Athens Services at 888-336-6100 for questions.

Holiday Collection Schedule

If one of the following holidays falls on or before your regular collection day for that week, your pick up day will be delayed by one day:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

Rates / Billing Information & Service Sign-up

The city’s Support Services Division is responsible for refuse billing and service level changes. Before your service level will be changed, the city will require verification from the trash hauler that an appropriate service level has been selected.

Christmas Tree Recycling

Holiday trees will be collected and recycled for the first two weeks after Christmas on your regular trash pickup day. Please follow these simple instructions:

  • Remove all decorations, nails, tree stand, and water bucket.
  • If the tree is over six feet, please cut it in half.
  • Place your tree on the curb on your normal trash collection day next to your automated containers.
  • If you live in a multifamily unit with dumpster collection, place your tree at the curb (or alley, if applicable) on the same trash day as the single-family homes in your immediate neighborhood. If you are unsure of whether your street has alley collection, please visit Athens Services or call 626-336-3636.
