What types of yard waste are not picked up?
We do not pick up bagged dirt or soil, stumps, flower pots, garbage, rocks, food, logs, and tools. The Athens-Clarke County Solid Waste Department only collects leaf and limb debris that a property owner has generated. Individuals or companies under contract by the property owner to collect leaves and/or trim limbs must haul and dispose of the debris themselves (i.e., tree surgeons, utility companies, yard maintenance companies, etc.). This is per Solid Waste Ordinance Sec. 5-2-7.d Leaf and limb service--General Service District.
