DEKALB COUNTY GA – Due to significant COVID-19-related staffing challenges within iits residential collection team, the DeKalb County Sanitation Division is currently experiencing service delays for recycling and yard trimmings.

Sanitation crews will work through the weekend to ensure all recycling and yard trimmings are collected.

Residents are encouraged to keep their recycling and yard trimmings at the curb until servicing occurs.
