Sanitation / Solid Waste
Sanitation / Solid Waste
In 1988, Norcross converted from a city operated solid waste collection system to a privately operated system. The city offers refuse collection through a contractual agreement with Advanced Disposal for both residential and business collection.

Residential garbage collection is done once weekly at the curb. Back door or side yard pickup is provided to residential customers who are disabled. Medical certification is required for this service. Commercial dumpster customers may be serviced from one to six times per week based on the volume of waste generated.

Residential recycling collection is done once every other week at the curb in specially marked rolling containers with lids. On alternate weeks yard waste is collected from the curb and turned in to mulch for beneficial uses, lowering material sent to landfills.

City of Norcross accepts single stream recycling which allows customers to comingle items accepted for recycling in a single container. Please follow guidelines HERE so as not to contaminate recyclables and prevent them from being redirected to the landfill.

Commercial recycling dumpster customers may be serviced from one to six times per week based on the volume of recycling generated.

Bulky items not normally accepted may be scheduled for pick up by calling 770-448-2122. Twice yearly Event Recycling provides Solid Waste customers opportunities to dispose of bulky items by taking them to the designated location.

Complimentary paper shredding and recycling of electronics is offered semi-annually at designated locations.

For questions, or to report a problem with sanitation pickup, please contact the General Government Administration at 770-448-2122.
