What goes where?

Are plastic bags acceptable in the green container?
Plastic and “compostable/bioplastic” bags are accepted in the green container, but they must be CLEAR and contents inside the bag must be visible. Bags will be ripped open to liberate the contents but the bags will not be recycled or composted. Learn more about Residential Food Scrap Collection here.
How do I request additional carts or change cart size?
Old carts collected automatically if placed empty and upside down on curb on service day. If customers miss these dates, they will need to call Athens Customer Service to schedule a bulky item pickup.
How do I dispose of bulky items?
