Decatur, GA — The city of Decatur will host clean-up days every Saturday from September to December to allow residents to dispose of bulky materials.

All bulk items must be put on the curb no later than 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled clean-up day. Items set out later risk not being collected.

Here is a list of acceptable items:

– Yard trimmings and building materials not from the work of private contractors

– Tires

– Furniture

– Appliances not containing Freon

– Trash not normally placed in pay-as-you-throw bags

Items that cannot be collected are liquids, dirt, bricks and blocks, stone, rocks, concrete, and motor vehicle batteries or parts.

The clean-up days are broken down by neighborhoods each month. The first clean-up day will be Sept. 10.
