Trash & Sanitation

The City provides various sanitation services for residents including weekly trash pickup, bi-weekly recycling pickup, bulk item pickup, limb chipping, and leaf removal during the fall. The basic charge for trash services is $19 per month, billed annually on the Gwinnett County Property Tax Bill. The City contracts with Republic Services for recycling. There are no additional fees for recycling services.

Trash Services:

Trash service is provided curbside once per week either on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. It is important that each customer have the trash can at the curb before 7:00 a.m. on the day of the week listed for your street address (click here for list).

All household trash must be contained in City issued cans. The City will no longer pick up bagged / loose trash, yard debris, and limbs as part of regular trash services. Each home is allowed a maximum of two (2) 95-gallon City issued cans for weekly trash services. Contact City Hall at 770-963-7451 to purchase a City of Dacula trash can ($55 per can).

Misc. Services:

There are additional charges for bulk item pickup and limb chipping services. Leaf removal services are available during the fall free of charge. Call City Hall at 770-963-7451 to arrange for these special services, which are provided on Monday or Friday. Subject fees are billed directly by the City at time of request.

Recycling Services:

Recycling service is provided on a bi-weekly Friday schedule and is a free service to Dacula residents. Citizens are encouraged to participate!

Each home is allowed one (1) 95-gallon recycle bin free of charge. If you do not have a bin or if you have multiple smaller bins, (i.e. 18 or 37 gallons) please contact City Hall to exchange them for the 95-gallon bin, free of charge, or fill out the request form below.

All recycling must be placed at the end of your driveway or in the approved area near your curb prior to 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning. Please click here for the recycle pickup schedule.

Please do not place unacceptable items in your recycling bin or “bag” your recycling with plastic or garbage bags. If Republic Services deem your items unacceptable, all excluded waste could remain in your bin and the disposal would become your responsibility.
