The city of Lawrenceville is switching to a four-day garbage pickup schedule in February, it said in a press release.
Productivity and cost reduction were cited as the chief reasons for making the switch from five days to four.
“Being able to condense our pick-up schedule to 4 days allows us the ability to dedicate additional resources to the upkeep of our public spaces,” said city manager Chuck Warbington. “We accomplish more for the residents of Lawrenceville without added cost.”
Residents can check to see if their pickup day will be changed using their street address and this city spreadsheet. There will also be notices sent via mail, neighborhood signage and social media. Changes will also be communicated through homeowners associations.
The change only affects people who live within Lawrenceville city limits. Those living in unincorporated Lawrenceville (having a Lawrenceville address but not living within city limits) will not be affected.
