  • Items stored in your garage or basement (lawnmowers, appliances, grills, furniture, mattress, electronics, cardboard, etc.)
  • Yard debris (tree limbs, grass clippings, leaves, etc.)

This year, the City will expand the event to include e-waste recycling and paper shredding.

BUT WAIT, why wait until June 11?

Did you know…Many household items can be disposed of at your curbside or dropped off at the Public Works facility year-round.

Republic Services (your garbage company) will take mattresses, furniture, appliances and other household items at the curb. You must call Republic Services at 678.963.2800 within 24 hours of your scheduled pick-up day to request this free service. You must also attach a Duluth trash bag to the item.

Duluth residents benefit from having year-round dumpsters located at the Public Works Facility. Throughout the year, residents can dump appliances, sofas, mattresses/foundations, furniture, cardboard, lawnmowers, grills, old clothing, electronics (TV’s, VCR’s, stereo/computer equipment, etc.), vehicle parts and fluids (motor oil, batteries, antifreeze), old children’s toys, tree limbs, grass clippings, leaves, etc. We are even accepting glass as it is no longer taken at the curb with recycling items. We cannot list every item that is accepted here; if you have a question about an item, please call us at 770.476.2454.
