Notice to City of Rome Residents

 

Leaf season will begin the first week of  November. Remember, yard debris carts are serviced weekly, except during holiday weeks.  Please, if possible utilize your yard cart for leaves, yard clippings, etc. When placing out large amounts of debris please put leaves in a separate pile from other yard debris. Please keep in mind it will take us a minimum of 5 weeks to service all areas of the City under normal conditions. Please be patient and understand it takes time to service all residents. Residents may call the Solid Waste Collections Department at (706)236-4580 to inquire where the workers are to better schedule your yard maintenance.

 

 

Removal
 
 
The Solid Waste Collections Department provides curbside collection of garbage, recycling, yard waste and trash items, to all city residents.
 
The City operates its solid waste collections by providing residents with a City issued 65 or 95 gallon garbage cart. In special situations a resident may choose to use their own 20 gallon garbage container. All garbage must be contained in the size cart you have subscribed to. No bags can be left outside or on top of the container. Residents may choose to subscribe to mulitiple garbage carts. The monthly charge will be included on your utility bill.
 
Small items of junk like small applicances, small broken toys, etc. should be placed in garbage cart for collection. Larger items like furniture will also be collected when placed at the street. These items should not exceed the weight limit of 500 pounds or 4 cubic yards. 
 
Residents are also issued a 65 gallon recycle cart for recycling material and a yard waste cart for yard debris only.
 
Yard debris that will not fit into cart may also be placed at curbside but is not collected on a set schedule. Placing out for collection more than 4 cubic yards or 500 pounds at one time is considered a chargeable amount.
 
The City operates on a 4 day collection schedule. All garbage, recycling, yard waste carts, and trash will be collected on the same day. All items should be placed at curbside by 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
 
 
This department also provides garbage collection service for businesses. This can be a residential type service or dumpster service.
