For new and existing customers

The DeKalb County Sanitation Division offers residents in unincorporated DeKalb, and the cities of Brookhaven, Dunwoody, Lithonia, Tucker and Stonecrest a fee-based solid waste collection service. Garbage is collected on residents’ scheduled sanitation collection service day, which also coincides with residents’ recycling and yard trimmings collection day.

Establishing service for newly built homes
Requests for establishing sanitation service for newly built homes are subject to prorated annual sanitation assessment fees prior to service activation (see prorated fee instructions section). Assessment fees are based on the month new service is established. New customers receive a standard 65-gallon garbage roll cart, but have the ability to choose another roll cart option. Requests for a 45- or 65-gallon roll cart are not subject to roll cart fees. Requests for a 95-gallon roll cart are subject to a one-time $15 prepaid roll cart fee (see prepaid fee instructions section). Property owners can also request a second roll cart, which will require an increase in annual sanitation assessment fees (see prorated fee instructions section).

Changes to existing service
Property owners can request a second roll cart of any size, which will require an increase in annual sanitation assessment fees (see prorated fee instructions section). *Requests for switching to a 45- or 65-gallon roll cart are not subject to roll cart fees. *Switching to a 95-gallon roll cart is subject to a one-time $15 prepaid roll cart fee (see prepaid fee instructions below).
*Existing roll carts must be returned.
