You may have received a letter in the mail over the past few weeks describing a Pilot Sanitation project being administered by DeKalb County. The letter explained some of the basics. Here is more information, a route map and schedule for the Chamblee Sanitation Pilot Area.

During the First Quarter of 2014, DeKalb County Sanitation will begin a 3-month Pilot Program to evaluate use of one (1) day per week collection schedule. To accommodate the reduction of collection days, Pilot Participants will be issued 65-gallon roll carts. As part of the pilot, DeKalb Sanitation will test different types of garbage trucks. The Pilot includes 28,000 households along 28 routes that cover 9 areas including portions of Unincorporated DeKalb and portions of the cities of Dunwoody, Brookhaven, Chamblee and Lithonia. Each household selected to participate in the Pilot will receive a 65-gallon green roll cart container for garbage collection free of charge.
