Heat Causing Solid Waste and Yard Waste Pickup Delays

Heat has significantly impacted the readiness of our solid waste and yard waste trucks. As a result, we haven’t had enough available trucks to maintain solid waste and yard waste pickup schedules. Equipment issues with these trucks in such hot and humid conditions as we’ve experienced over the last few weeks are not uncommon. We apologize to residents for the inconvenience. Our first priority is to pick up solid waste (green carts). Our staff is currently working on its off days of Wednesdays and Saturdays to catch up on missed routes. Our second priority is yard waste (brown carts) and it may not be collected this week. At this time, it is recommended to leave solid waste out for pickup and it will be collected as soon as possible. We hope to be back on schedule next week and will keep residents informed on our progress. 

Roxie Avenue



Project Overview: 

The Roxie Avenue System was identified for improvements during the Buckhead Creek Watershed Study. These improvements will be accomplished in three phases. 

Phase I -  The first phase has currently been funded for construction. This project will alleviate flooding along Roxie Avenue through the installation of a flow splitter near the intersection of Martindale Drive and Roxie Avenue and a conveyance system along Martindale Drive. The improvements will allow storm flows to bypass Roxie Avenue and connect back to the existing conveyance system near the intersection of Martindale Drive and Hartwell Road

Phase II - TBD
