On April 1, Chamblee Public Works wheels out a once-a-week sanitation schedule to replace the twice-a-week schedule. Residents are recycling more and discarding less, and the new once-a-week schedule allows Chamblee to utilize its resources more cost-efficiently. We will continue to provide the same high quality service residents have come to expect while reducing sanitation equipment and maintenance costs.
The new system utilizes an automated mechanism that hoists and dumps rolling carts into the collection truck. The City of Chamblee is providing residential sanitation customers with a 95-gallon cart for sanitation, which will be delivered before once-a-week service begins. Residents can also request a 35-gallon cart for recycling (but you can still use your 18-gallon bin if you prefer). For those who generate less garbage, or who recycle more, a limited number of 65-gallon carts will be available by request on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit the website or call 770-986-5040 to make your request.
The once-a-week service model will roll out in two phases: Phase I includes the areas north of Peachtree-DeKalb Airport to the I-285 access road (Savoy Drive); east to the Doraville city limits and west to the Brookhaven city limits. Phase II includes the areas south of Peachtree-DeKalb
Airport to the I-85 access road; east from the Doraville city limits and west to the Brookhaven city limits. Public Works has developed maps that show the route locations and street names covered by those routes.
Phase I will receive their 95 gallon roll carts beginning on Monday March 16, 2015. Phase I is scheduled to begin on or around April 1, 2015. Phase II is scheduled to begin on or around July 1, 2015.
