Trash is collected on Fridays in the Condos and Townhomes. It is collected twice a week (Tuesday and Friday) in the Manor.) Cobb County requires that all trash be placed in plastic bags that are secured with a drawstring or other closure. Condos and Townhomes residents must put their trash bins out on collection mornings and remove them that evening.
No glass, plastic bags or Styrofoam are allowed. Place these items (bagged) in the trash container. The presence of glass in a recycling bin may be considered to contaminate the entire load of recycling items.
You must break down and fold cardboard boxes. Please remove plastic or other non-paper packaging material from the cardboard boxes before leaving them for removal. (Place these items in the trash.)
Recycled items must be clean of food: no pizza boxes! Rinse cans so no food is left to attract unwanted visitors.
View the Recycling Guidelines sticker.
Disposal of Appliances, Furniture, and Specialty Items.
Please be aware of that the trash haulers will not take televisions, appliances, furniture, computers and other such items. Make arrangements to dispose of these items on your own. The Association must pay additional fees to have these items removed from the property when left by the recycle bins or in the trash room and that’s not fair to your neighbors. Cobb County has various waste disposal facilities that you can use for these and other items, including glass (for hardcore recyclers).
