Residential Solid Waste Program

fThe Clean South Fulton Program is a comprehensive approach to changing how our community looks and TrashBinfeels.  A vital component of that plan is residential collections for solid waste.  This program aims to make the City of South Fulton cleaner and more attractive through a consistent, reliable, comprehensive, and cost-effective solid waste program.  This program covers more than just residential collections; it also includes Street Sweeping, Illegal Dumping Site Management, and the servicing of trash receptacles.  

This site will serve as a one-stop shop to keep you up-to-date on upcoming changes, how to get service during the transition, a new resident, or have ended a relationship with another provider.  If you currently have a provider, we would ask that you continue to honor your agreement.
