Final meetings this week about DeKalb trash service

DeKalb County, which is considering cut backs to its near-daily curbside trash pick-up, will hold its final two meetings about the service this week.

For $265 a year, residents had been receiving twice weekly trash pickup and recycling pickup and yard trimmings once a week with no volume limit.

To help keep costs, and the fee, down, the county late last year consolidated recycling and yard waste pick-up into one day.

The next question will be whether DeKalb moves to once weekly trash pickup.

A meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Cedar Gove High School, 2360 River Road, in Ellenwood.

A final meeting will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday at at Chapel Hill Middle School, 3535 Dogwood Farm Road, near Decatur.
