City Offers New Brown Yard Debris Bins

The City of Carrollton is pleased to offer our customers a brown wheeled bin (similar to a garbage bin) to make collecting yard debris easier. The cost of each bin is $60 and the City will cover half. If you would like a brown bin, a one-time charge of $30 will be added to your utility bill. Only City-issued brown bins may be used due to truck compatibility requirements. Bins will be available for distribution in late October. To order, email the account name and service address to utilitybilling@carrollton-ga.gov or call 770-830-2000.

Water/Sewer Honored for Utilities Safety

The City of Carrollton’s Water and Sewer Division was recently recognized for working with care near underground utilities. SyncGlobal Telecom and Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative co-hosted SyncGlobal’s annual 811 Day Meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 11, to share pertinent information on safe digging and recognize companies.

“Our workers place the highest priority on jobsite safety,” said Carrollton Public Works Director Mike Green. “We appreciate the recognition.”

811 Day serves as a reminder to call 8-1-1 before digging so underground utilities can be flagged to prevent damage. The event has been held the past two years on Aug. 11. Employees of Carroll EMC, SyncGlobal Telecom, Georgia Power, GreyStone Power Corporation and members of the West Georgia Utility Coordinating Committee (UCC) nominated utilities, municipalities and contractors who are seen following state dig laws and regulations for special honors. Also recognized this year were Southern Company Gas and Lions Den Construction.

“We wanted to recognize the local companies who go out of their way to not only practice safe digging but promote it as well,” said Terrence Cooley, Carroll EMC’s utility coordinator who serves as both Chairman of the West Georgia UCC and state co-director for the Georgia Utilities Coordinating Council.

SyncGlobal Telecom, headquartered in Bremen, GA, serves business-class customers in western and northwestern Georgia as a facility-based CLEC and ISP and operates an existing fiber network totaling approximately 400 route miles. Carroll EMC is a member-owned cooperative providing electricity to approximately 50,000 homes and businesses in Carroll, Haralson, Heard, Paulding, Polk, Floyd and Troup counties.

Memorial Day Schedule

City of Carrollton administrative offices will be closed Monday, May 25, 2020, in observance of Memorial Day. All garbage and recycling will be picked up the day following your usual scheduled collection day.

COVID-19 Garbage Pick-Up

In an effort to maintain garbage service during the COVID-19 situation and protect our public works staff, we have placed crews on rotating schedules – which means we are operating with fewer crew members per route. Pick up may take longer than usual or extend to the day following your normal pick-up time.

We are also discontinuing recycling services until further notice.

Please place bins out for your usual pick up and leave out until we’ve arrived. If possible, place all items (trash + recycling) into one bin to expedite the process.
