Clean it up Atlanta!
The Department of Public Works is pleased to announce The “Clean It Up Atlanta!” Campaign, a concentrated effort to host citywide amnesty clean-up days monthly, where residents will not be fined for trash/debris around their property. Clean-ups will focus on clearing litter and debris in a different quadrant of the city each month. The program will run June through October.
Prior to each clean-up, the Solid Waste Education & Code Enforcement Team will conduct a sweep of the area to identify and address any code violations to give residents an opportunity to clean-up their property and surrounding areas. Enforcement officers will utilize education and enforcement measures to address code violations such as improper waste disposal, illegal dumping, illegal signs on the right-of-way and other solid waste issues. One week prior to the scheduled clean-up day, informational postcards/flyers will be distributed to residents living in the designated clean-up area.
Residents are encouraged to clean and remove debris from their property and place at the curbside on the designated day. On Amnesty Clean-Up day, Solid Waste Services will collect the material placed at the curbside. Properties that remain in violation after the clean-up may be subject to fines and or penalties for non-compliance.
The “Clean It Up Atlanta!” campaign is a partnership effort of Atlanta residents, the Departments of Public Works, Corrections, Atlanta Police Code Enforcement and the Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission.
