Trash Collection

The City of Lawrenceville provides 95-gallon roll-out style trash carts to its sanitation customers residing within the city limits for curbside collection of solid household waste. To determine your collection day or to request additional information, please visit My City Services or call Customer Service at Phone: 678-407-6675.

On Your Trash Collection Day

All carts must be brought to the end of driveway, at the curb or edge of street for collection, unless previously approved by the Sanitation Department. All trash must be bagged and placed inside the 95-gallon City provided cart with the lid in the closed position. Carts must be placed at the curb by 7 AM on your designated collection day or after 5 PM the day before. Garbage not inside the cart with the lid in the closed position will not be picked up. Recycling is collected the same day as trash.

Why does the City provide carts to Sanitation customers?
Cleanliness: Roll-out carts, such as these, with attached lids help keep odors in and vermin and animals out. The attached lid helps prevent spills while keeping our streets clean and aesthetically pleasing.
User-Friendly:  Rolling carts have wide handles, a large lifting ledge on the lid, a foot tilt area on the back of the cart body, and large wheels for easy tilting and maneuvering while moving the cart.
Efficiency & Safety:  The addition of new carts will allow more efficient collection by our Sanitation Crews and will increase their safety. 

What about recycling? Recycling services are provided by Lawrenceville Sanitation. Customers may obtain a recycling bin by calling Customer Service at Phone: 678-407-6675 or email Customer Service.
