Garbage/Recycling Collection

The City of Roswell has resumed its normal sanitation/recycling schedule. Questions about collection of garbage, recycling, or yard waste should be directed to 770-641-3961.

Yard Waste

Due to the storm, we are allowing additional yard waste to be set out, but please limit the size of your bundles and limbs to expedite pickup. Limbs still need to be cut down to the allowed 4 ft in length. Due to the sheer amount of yard waste that needs to be collected, the City’s contractor may not get to all the yard waste in your neighborhood on your "usual" day. Please leave it out at the curb and they will get there ASAP.

Other Storm Debris

We are also asking residents with an unusual amount or type of storm debris (fencing, roofing tiles, etc) to contact City Sanitation Staff at 770-817-6731 for advice on disposal options. Municipal solid waste and construction debris must be disposed of separately in order to comply with State law.

The City of Roswell Solid Waste Division thanks everyone for their continued patience.

Roswell Municipal Court

Roswell Municipal Court was closed on Monday, September 11, due to inclement weather. If you had a court date for September 11, it has been rescheduled to November 15, 2017, and your appointed time—9:00 AM or 1:30 PM—will remain the same for November 15. If you have any questions, please contact Court Services at 770-641-3790.

Downed Trees

If you experience a downed tree due to inclement weather in the coming days, here are a few ways to report it:
  • If the tree has fallen into the right-of-way (roadway), but it is not blocking the road (cars can still get past), please report the issue using the City of Roswell's See-Click-Fix system at www.roswellgov.com/SeeClickFix.

  • If a tree has fallen into the roadway and is blocking the roadway, call the City of Roswell's Non-Emergency line at 770-640-4100.

  • If a tree has fallen and has created a hazardous situation that threatens personal or public safety (ex. It has taken down power lines or has fallen and injured or trapped someone), call 911. Remember to please use 911 only in emergency situations. Using 911 for anything other than true emergencies can potentially hamper our emergency response for someone else.
