Holiday Garbage & Recycling Collection Schedule

The curbside garbage and recycling service will be delayed by one day starting Thursday, Nov. 24, Thanksgiving Day. If your service day is Thursday you will be picked up on Friday, Nov. 25 and Friday customers will be picked up on Saturday Nov. 26. Please make sure your garbage is out by 6 there may be additional trucks running to assure timely pick up and purchase the City blue bags for any extra bags you may have.

This year the Christmas Holiday will NOT effect the routes for residential garbage and recycling pick up.

We encourage you to purchase the City blue bags for your extra garbage. Placing too many bags in the carts and over loading will only scatter trash when the mechanical arm lifts your can. The Snellville Recycling Center welcomes your wrapping paper, paste board and cardboard boxes to cut down on your volume placed at the curb for recycling. Please take advantage of the American Kidney Foundation truck located inside the recycling center for cleaning out toys, clothing and household items making room for your new gifts and purchases.

This year New Years Day will NOT effect the routes for residential garbage and recycling pick up.
