DeKalb County, GA, May 11, 2015 – by The Post Reports – With the upcoming one-day-per-week sanitation collection service change implementation program drawing near, DeKalb County Sanitation Division Associate Director, Billy Malone says there is a plan and the program will be officially launched on May 28, 2015.
On or about May 29, the County will begin door hanger delivery to notify residents of their new day for one-day-a-week sanitation collection service. This project will take approximately three to four weeks.
Following the notification, roll cart delivery to residents will begin during the week of June 21. There is a possibility – depending on the speed in which the door-hanger notices are delivered – the program may begin a week earlier.
Malone says the roll cart delivery process will take up to eight weeks to complete, but could be completed in six weeks if all goes well.
“The “go live” date for beginning one-day-a-week collection service is July 6 for customers who will have Monday as their new collection day, July 7 for customers who will have Tuesday as their new collection day, July 8 for customers who will have Wednesday as their new collection day, and July 9 for customers who will have Thursday as their new collection day,” says Malone.
Malone notes, the one-day-a-week collection service will begin on July 6 even if certain customers have still not received their roll cart. These customers will be allowed to continue using their own provided garbage containers until they receive their county-issued roll cart.
All roll cart deliveries should be completed by the end of August at the latest, but as advised earlier, could be completed as early as mid-August.
Additionally, when roll carts are delivered, a revised 2015 sanitation holiday collection schedule, a sanitation collection procedures brochure, and a brochure advising on roll cart use will be distributed to residents.
The County stresses that all dates above are subject to change, but at this time, they feel confident this is a viable schedule.
