Curbside Pick Up
A "Special Yard Waste Bag" is also available at the same locations as the "Special Garbage Bags." Locations are Public Works, Publix and Kroger both on Scenic Hwy in Snellville. Go to the information desk at Kroger and Publix. The bags are imprinted with the City seal and instructions that include a phone number. Call the number to let them know the number of bags you will place at the curb. Residents must call the number by noon on Tuesday for pick up on Wednesdays. The yard waste bag is a 30-gallon paper bag designed specifically for yard debris. The cost of the bag is $2.52 per bag. When you purchase the bag the cost of curbside collection will be included. Yard waste such as grass clippings, leaves, small branches and shrubbery clippings must be placed inside the "Special Yard Waste Bag" to insure collection. Larger limbs and branches must be bound in 4-feet lengths and be no larger than 6 inches in diameter and weigh less than 50 pounds per arm load bundle and must have a "Special Yard Waste Bag" attached to insure collection.
