Solid Waste Collection and Disposal
Residents must call the Sanitation Department at 770-794-5595 to make arrangements for collection of larger trash items that cannot fit into a garbage can. The individual household will be billed for collection of these items. Please do not place large items by the street for collection unless you have notified the Sanitation Department to arrange for pickup.
All trash containers should be stored in garages or at the rear of the residence and placed by the curb only on collection day. Any large items should be placed by the residence's curb only on collection day (if prior arrangements have been made for pick up).
Households must have an adequate number of garbage cans with tight fitting lids. Trash cans cannot exceed 32 gallons in size. All trash must be stored in containers.
Trash cans must display an official city of Marietta decal in order to be emptied.
Tip: Households, contractors and tree surgeons are responsible for the disposal of construction debris, tires, demolition/remodeling waste and trees or oversized limbs. These items or waste materials will not be collected by the city.
