City of Atlanta Department of Public Works Solid Waste 3 n 1
Southeast Atlanta's Day is Tuesday
Frequently Asked Questions
The Department of Public Works continues to improve on our service delivery. Effective August 1, 2011, we will begin citywide quadrant based weekly collection service for household garbage, recycling, and yard trimmings. Three core services in one day concentrated in the NW, NE, SW, and SE quadrants of the city.
1. Why the change?
We recognize that change is critical to our survival in order to meet the expressed needs of our customer in a more energy efficient and cost effective way. The new 3 n 1 system will allow the City to address issues such as:
2. What are the benefits to making a change in collections?
The new 3 n 1 collection service will allow for:
3. Will there be any additional services effective August 1, 2011?
3 n 1 will also provide for additional services such as scheduled residential street sweeping, bulk waste pick-up, and concentrated solid waste education and enforcement.
6. If I live on a street that is defined as a boundary how do I know what my new collection day is?
The customer’s collection day is defined by the quadrant their address resides in, i.e. NW, NE, SE or SW.
7. Will backyard customers be impacted by the change?
Backyard collections will not change until January 2012. January 2012 backyard pick up customers will receive service the same as regular pick up customers per the posted scheduled.
8. How will bulk waste be handled?
Effective August 1, 2011 you will no longer have to call Public Works to request bulk waste pick up. We will collect bulk items once per month within each quadrant of the City as follows:
This schedule is a guide to show the starting date per quadrant. We will work in each quadrant until streets are completed. We will post notices at neighborhood entrances prior to pick up.
When there is a 5th week in a given month, that time will be used to recheck areas throughout the city where bulk collection may have been delayed due to weather or resource issues.
9. Is there a fee for bulk waste pick-up?
Currently there is not a fee for bulk waste pickup. This is a service that is included in the overall Solid Waste bill. However, Public Works will be seeking legislation in the near future to implement a special service fee for bulk pick up requests beyond the established once per month pick up schedule. Until the new service fee is implemented, we encourage customers to use the defined pick up schedule.
10. What are the guidelines for bulk waste pick-up?
11. How will residential street sweeping be scheduled?
Residential street sweeping will be done by quadrant of the city, allowing for residential streets to be swept four times per year as follows for the remainder of calendar year 2011:
The rotation will continue as follows December 2011 through 2012:
This rotation will continue unless otherwise noted. Signs will be posted at neighborhood entrances and a schedule will be posted online.
Please visit our website for updates: http://www.atlantaga.gov/government/publicworks/SWS3n1.aspx.
12. Will there be any parking restrictions to accommodate street sweeping?
Street sweeping in residential areas will occur during day time hours. “No Parking” notices will be posted 72 hours prior to the sweeping day. The “No Parking” notices will include the day, date, and time for the sweeping service.
13. Will right of way cutting and de-littering be scheduled the same as 3 n 1?
Right of way cutting operates on a separate schedule. For more information, please visit: http://www.atlantaga.gov/government/publicworks/solidwaste_110507.aspx
14. How will the new Solid Waste 3n1 impact the holiday service schedule?
HOLIDAY COLLECTONS SCHEDULE
Holidays that fall on Monday will delay all pickups for that week by one day. Holidays that fall on Friday, Saturday or Sunday do not impact regularly schedule pick up days. Collection continues on the customer’s regularly scheduled pick up day.

We had a great response to our first request for Neighborhood Watch Block Captains! The image to the right shows our current list of volunteers and streets that are covered. We still need more Block Captains to ensure all streets have one.
If you're interested in being a Block Captain, please send an email to Michael Connelly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Michael will collect your name and address so we can mark the street off as having a Block Captain.
If you have sent an email to Michael already, please be patient and refrain from sending a second email.
Michael will send an email to all volunteers in the next 2 weeks that will announce the date of our first Block Captain meeting. At that meeting we will discuss what the responsibilities are. It's not going to be a cumbersome job, but we do recommend that you don't mind meeting your neighbors to inform them of the program and to request minimal contact information from them.
For questions and more information, please be at the GPNA Neighborhood meeting on Tuesday, March 15th at 7:30pm in the ARC Building, Zoo Atlanta World Theater - Cherokee Street parking lot. When you're facing the zoo, park in the back right corner and go through the gates in the back right corner of the parking lot.
