WASTE COLLECTION & RECYCLING GUIDELINES FOR Lowndes County, GA

Guidelines for Curbside Garbage Service

Advanced Disposal Convenient Collection Centers 

Advanced Disposal is working with Lowndes County in response to requests from residents to add collection centers to drop off your yard waste, recyclables and bulky materials and to be in compliance with the new solid waste ordinance adopted March 16, 2015. 

You no longer have to wait every other week to get rid of your yard waste, recyclables and bulky items. Simply deliver the materials to the collection center nearest you at your convenience. 

Curbside service only includes garbage collection to be picked up once a week using our 95-gallon cart along with unlimited usage of our Advanced Disposal collection centers to drop off your yard waste, recycling, and bulky materials at your convenience.        

The collection centers are free of charge as long as you are a current Advanced Disposal residential customer. Verification is required for usage and customers must bring verification of address such as a photo ID, Advanced Disposal invoice or another utility invoice showing account name and address.

Please note: the collection centers will not accept household garbage.
