"DeKalb County Commission cuts garbage service to one day per week"

Decaturish: Garbage pickup in DeKalb County will soon be reduced from two days a week to one day a week as part of a cost-saving measure proposed by interim County CEO Lee May.

County Commissioners approved the plan at the commission’s March 10 meeting.

In addition to cutting back the number of days, garbage collectors would also pick up yard waste and recycling on the same day. That means residents will only see garbage trucks one time each week instead of four. Collection fees will not increase as part of the plan. County residents pay roughly $265 annually for trash collection services.   [READ MORE]
