New Trash Carts
During the week of January 27 - 31, 2020, the City of Lawrenceville is pleased to provide new 95-gallon roll-out style trash carts to its customers residing within the city limits (30046 zip code) for curbside collection of solid household waste.
Why is the City providing new carts?
Cleanliness: Roll-out carts, such as these, with attached lids help keep odors in and vermin and animals out. The attached lid helps prevents spills while keeping our streets clean and aesthetically pleasing.
User-Friendly: Rolling carts have wide handles, a large lifting ledge on the lid, a foot tilt area on the back of the cart body, and large wheels for easy tilting and maneuvering while moving the cart.
Efficiency & Safety: The addition of new carts will allow more efficient collection by our Sanitation Crews and will increase their safety.
Is my pick-up day changing? No. The arrival of the new carts will not affect your trash pick-up day.
What about recycling? Recycling services are provided by Latham Home Sanitation. Customers may obtain a bin by calling 770.554.0455. Your recycling pick-up day will not be affected by the arrival of the new cans.
What do I do with my old can? We encourage you to repurpose your old can.

What about leaf service, tree limbs and removal of bulk items? Your new 95-gallon trash carts are for household waste ONLY. Please see our Collection Policy for details on disposal of leaves, limbs and bulk items.
Can I get an extra trash cart? Yes, but there is a fee for an additional cart.
Extra cart fees: One-time $50 delivery charge per cart and $20 per cart per month for each additional cart added to the account after the initial cart. Please contact Customer Service for details. Phone: 678-407-6675 or firstname.lastname@example.org
