UPDATE: DeKalb County offering residents opportunity to exchange recycling binsThe DeKalb County Sanitation Department.
The DeKalb County Sanitation Division will host its final recycling roll cart exchange event from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8, offering recycling customers a chance to exchange their recycling bins for new roll carts. The event will take place at the North DeKalb Mall, located at 2050 Lawrenceville Highway in Decatur.
“Due to inclement weather expected, the event will take place inside the mall entrance area next to Burlington Coat Factory,” the county said.
Current recycling subscribers must trade in their 18-gallon recycling bins before Dec. 28, according to the county. The roll cart exchange event will allow residents to complete the exchange process early by switching out their bin for a complimentary 35-gallon recycling roll cart.
Alternatively, residents can upgrade to a 65-gallon recycling roll cart for a one-time $15 prepaid fee.
At the event, only 500 roll carts will be available, and requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Anyone who can’t get a roll cart during the event can submit a completed subscription form onsite, and a roll cart will be delivered to the service address within 10 business days after the event.
All event participants are required to complete a recycling subscription form, which can be obtained by visiting the DeKalb Sanitation Website, and will be available at the event, too. New recycling subscriptions can also be processed during the event.
Roll cart exchange requests can also be submitted by mail, online here, by emailing email@example.com or in person at the Sanitation Division’s administration building, located at 3720 Leroy Scott Drive, any time Monday – Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
