Garbage and Sanitation

The city of City of Oglethorpe contracts with an outside waste management company for solid waste collection and recycling. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection.  Garbage is picked up on Wednesday mornings; however, we recommend taking your container to the street on Tuesday night.  If your cart is damaged, please contact city hall and we will have a replacement delivered to you.

The City of Oglethorpe also provides leaf and limb pickup service along with a large household item service, such as old mattresses, bicycles and things of this nature.  If you are disgarding any of these items, they must be seperated.  The City will not pick up items that are intermingled. We require all limbs be cut to 6ft or less in length and leaves be in a pile with no other items.  Your location depends on when your items will be picked up.  Please see below for Trash Pick Up Schedule.

As always if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or come by city hall.
