Decatur, GA — The city of Decatur is hosting neighborhood cleanup days on Saturdays in October and throughout the rest of the year. During cleanup days, residents have the opportunity to get rid of bulky materials that wouldn’t be put in the pay-as-you-throw bags.
Every street in the city has been assigned a Saturday, according to the city. All items to be disposed of should be placed at the curb by 7:30 a.m. to make sure city staff doesn’t have to rerun routes. Collections will run until 3:30 p.m. or until finished — whichever is sooner.
Acceptable items include:
— Yard trimmings;
— Building materials that are not from the work of private contractors;
— Appliances not containing Freon; and
— Trash that would not normally be placed in pay-as-you-throw bags.
Items that cannot be accepted are liquids, dirt, bricks, blocks, stone rocks, concrete and motor vehicle batteries or parts.
Collection days in October are Oct. 15, 22 and 29. Here is the full schedule for this month:
