Sanitation services altered due to COVID-19


SAVANNAH, GA (April 2, 2020) — Effective Monday, April 6, Sanitation’s residential services will be limited to garbage collection only. The following services will be temporarily suspended until further notice in response to COVID-19 to enable the City to increase social distance between employees:

  • Recycling
  • Yard Waste
  • Bulk Item Pickup
  • Special Collections

Residents may use their recycling cart for garbage overflow. Residents are urged to avoid putting bulk items and yard waste on the curb, as they will not be picked up during the time of suspended services. Residents are also asked to report incidents of illegal dumping.

The two drop off centers (Dean Forest Landfill Facility and Bacon Park Transfer Station) will remain open during normal business hours and citizens can bring recycling, yard waste and bulk items to these locations:

Dean Forest Landfill Facility:

Monday-Thursday: 7 a.m. – 4:15 p.m.
Friday: 7 a.m.- 3:15 p.m.
Saturday: 7 a.m. – 2:45 p.m.
