The city requires all businesses to subscribe to a minimum level of trash collection service. Athens will try to set up share accounts for small businesses but this type of arrangement may not always be possible. Athens bills directly for trash collection services. Please contact Athens directly at 626-336-6100 for billing questions or to sign up for or change service levels.
