“All items to be collected should be placed at the curb no later than 7:30a.m.,” the announcement from the city says. “This ensures that we do not have to rerun routes for late setouts. Collections run until
3:30 p.m., or until finished, whichever is sooner.”

The cleanup will begin with the Oakhurst neighborhood. Here is the full schedule, provided by the city of Decatur.
