In 2009, the Mayor and Council approved contracts with four sanitation companies to provide residential curbside garbage and recycling collection. The companies and their base price for both garbage and recycling are listed above (the companies set and change their own rates).
The above rates include the City's $1.00 Franchise Fee, imposed to help address litter problems and to increase recycling programs and education through Keep Peachtree City Beautiful. Check with individual companies for additional services and prices (extra carts, yard debris, bulky waste, backdoor service), and discount rates for whole subdivisions. If your garbage company is not listed above or if you see operators in town that are not listed above, please contact Betsy Tyler.
Please contact your company for a recycling bin at no additional cost.

Is participation in recycling mandatory?
All companies are required to provide both garbage collection and recycling service as part of their base rate. Residents are NOT required to participate in recycling, but it is available at no additional cost. Please contact your provider for a recycling bin.
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 Betsy Tyler 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 the recycling companies. The overall goal is to see in an increase in recyclables in the coming year(s).
