Does Richmond Hill collect bulk trash?

The City in partnership with the Georgia Municipal Association’s Cities Week, hosts a free bulk trash pickup event held annually in April. Streets crews work the entire week to collect bulk trash that would be otherwise considered unacceptable items during regular dry trash pickup. Dates of the collection and a list of acceptable items will be provided on the utility bill printed prior to collection.

What happens to the bulk trash?

In the most recent year, the City collected approximately 220 tons of bulk trash during this event. Streets staff sorts through all items prior to disposal to sell any metals in order to add funds to our reserve.
