Get ready to throw out your old mattress, DeKalb.
Every weekend for a month, beginning Nov. 30, sanitation workers will collect it and any bulk items you need to trash for free.
Residents can sit bulk items, such as furniture and large appliances, on the curb for collection.
The collection schedules will be based on residents’ sanitation schedules:
- Residents whose sanitation service day is Monday will be serviced on Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1.
- Residents whose sanitation service day is Tuesday will be serviced on Friday, Dec. 7, and Saturday, Dec. 8.
- Residents whose sanitation service day is Wednesday will be serviced on Friday, Dec. 14, and Saturday, Dec. 15.
- Residents whose sanitation service day is Thursday will be serviced Friday, Dec. 21, and Saturday, Dec. 22.
Residents who miss their collection days should call the Sanitation Division’s customer service team at 404-294-2900 to be placed on a bulky item collection escalation list.
