The city has coordinated with DeKalb Sanitation to host two recycle bin trade-in events here in Dunwoody on October 14 and on October 22. DeKalb County Sanitation Division is requiring residents to switch to a new standard 35-gallon recycle roll cart (or an upgraded 65-gallon recycle roll cart) to replace the existing 18-gallon bins and 40-gallon bags as part of the residential single-stream recycling program.

Existing subscribers with 18-gallon bins must trade them in by April 30, 2018, for a complimentary 35-gallon roll cart or, for a $15 fee, subscribers can choose a 65-gallon roll cart. Existing subscribers must trade in/return the 18-gallon recycling bin prior to obtaining the complimentary 35-gallon roll cart or the 65-gallon roll cart.

The City of Dunwoody has coordinated with DeKalb Sanitation to offer two bin trade-in events in Dunwoody.

1.      Saturday October 14, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at Brook Run Park (4770 North Peachtree Road, parking lot adjacent to the skate park)

2.      Sunday October 22, from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Dunwoody City Hall (41 Perimeter Center East, parking lot)

To register for a Dunwoody bin trade-in event please visit the Parks Registration Portal. Select the 'DeKalb Sanitation Recycle Bin Trade-in' event tab and then select the event you would like to attend to make your trade-in.  You will need to create an account with the Parks Registration Portal. After “Checkout” is complete please View/Print the residential curbside single-stream recycling subscription form and bring that along with cash or check (if you choose to upgrade to the 65-gallon roll cart it will cost $15) to your selected event and DeKalb County Sanitation will handle the swap. 

Participants will need to bring in a completed residential curbside single-stream recycling subscription form. The completed form must be presented along with an existing 18-gallon recycling bin for trade-in. Following the bin trade-ins, subscribers can take home a new roll cart or coordinate a roll cart home delivery with the Sanitation Department (delivery estimated at 10 business days.)  Only cash or checks will be accepted at the event for payment of the $15 fee for the 65-gallon roll cart upgrade. Not able to make the two bin trade-in events in Dunwoody? Not to worry, subscribers can also trade-in existing 18-gallon bins in person at the Sanitation Division’s administrative office, 3720 Leroy Scott Drive, Decatur, Georgia 30032.
