Austell Public Works has made it even easier for residents to stay connected about waste management collection and programs. Our department is always looking for new and creative ways to meet the needs of our residents and we are pleased to announce the release of two new tools–a collection day calendar and a mobile app, Austell Collects. Both tools were designed to help residents remember their garbage and recycling day, know when a holiday will affect their collection day, and see what day we will be at your address to collect your leaves and limbs–both on the web and mobile.
Visit our website at Garbage and Recycling Day Schedule and search for your home address in our new collection day calendar tool. This free service will allow residents to sign up to receive waste collection reminders by e-mail, phone call, text message, and Twitter. Once signed up, residents will receive weekly reminders and will also be notified of schedule changes due to any service delay, inclement weather, holidays, and upcoming events. Seasonable campaigns will also be included at various times of the year to include the bi-annual cleanup, Earth Day events, and Christmas tree recycling. Collection schedules can be downloaded directly to your iCal, Google calendar, or Microsoft Outlook calendar. Additionally, residents can print a customized collection schedule.
Not sure how to properly dispose of something? Visit our website at Garbage and Recycling Day Schedule and use our new What Bin Does It Go In? to find out if a material can be reused, recycled, composted, or disposed of.
To download our mobile app, visit the iOS Apple app store or Google Play app store and search for Austell Collects.
