My company is not listed. Will I have to switch?
Please double-check the full listing -- several companies have recently been purchased, although the garbage canisters still have the old names. If your company is not listed above, they will have to contact the City for approval to continue providing service within the City limits. Please contact Cinnamon Mack about companies not included in the full lists above.
How do we know the recyclables are really being recycled?
Each quarter, the companies authorized to use City streets for residential solid waste collection will be required to submit reports on the total tonnage collected of both garbage and recyclables. City staff and Keep Peachtree City Beautiful (KPTCB) will audit these reports to ensure that the reported recyclables are being taken to recycling companies. The overall goal is to see an increase in recyclables in the coming year(s).
