Can I Put A Dumpster On The Street In Peachtree City?



How to legally place a dumpster on public property or Street in Peachtree City.

What are the laws? 

Rental dumpsters may be placed on the cart path, or public property if the citizen renting the dumpster obtains an encroachment permit from the city of Peachtree prior to renting. Dumpsters may not be placed on city streets, however they may be placed on cart paths, right-of-ways, and occasionally sidewalks with a permit. Dumpsters (or any obstruction) may NOT be left over night without prior permission from the Peachtree City Code Enforcement Department. Ordinance code 70-3 is most commonly used for residents and addresses rental dumpsters and various obstructions placed in Rights-of-way, sidewalks, and carts; especially obstructions left over night. Contractors and Roofers should see ordinance code 18-10 for details about what would be considered an unsafe work site in regards to disposal of debris and rental dumpsters. For full ordinance code can be found on the Municipal Code Website.

The Code Enforcement Department of Peachtree city can be contacted through Email at codeenforcement@peachtree-city.org or by phone at (770)-487-5731. 

What is an Encroachment permit?

An Encroachment permit is a legal document obtained from the city that allows one to temporarily utilizes public space under the guidance of the permit. This permit helps keep the city looking nice by assigning the holder responsible for repairing and paying for any damages done to city property by the rental dumpster or various equipment.

How do I obtain a permit?

Peachtree City has two different Encroachment permits, the first is used for Right-Of-Ways and sidewalks, the second is used for Cart Paths.  Both of these permits (as well as others) can be found on the Peachtree City home website under Engineering. These forms and permits are free and can, usually, be obtained on a same-day basis.

How To Dispose Of Paint In Less Than 5 Steps!


How To Dispose Of Paint In Less Than 5 Steps!

We are no different, everybody loves the look of a freshly painted house.  However, a common question that is asked when someone is renting a dumpster is, “May I put my wet paint, or paint cans in the bin as well?”  The answer to that question is yes and no. If the paint is 100% dry it can be put directly into the dumpster.  Wet paint has to be dried out and if you do not love watching paint dry, we have some tips to help speed up the process. Our tips are fairly easy and there is couple of ways of doing it.


Recommended Disposal Method 

The most common way is to simply mix the wet paint with cement and let it dry (this tip is for disposing of 1 gallon of paint, recipe can me adjusted to handle as much as needed). To do this you will need a plastic 5 gal. bucket with a lid, bagged cement, and a sturdy stir stick. Start by pouring the wet paint into the plastic bucket, then add the dry cement mix to the bucket. Use the sturdy stick to thoroughly mix the paint and cement mixture to a thick milkshake texture. Once you have made finished mixing set the bucket of cement paint and the empty paint can out to dry. It is that simple!

Sand, kitty litter, or saw dust can be used in lieu of cement.  The only down fall to using those materials is that is will take much longer to cure!

Most Cost Effective Way To Dispose Of Paint 

Another way is to simply let it dry out.  This will be difficult to do if it is left in the can, but you can spread it out on a cardboard box, plywood, or even a section of old carpet, increasing the surface area of the paint will make it dry faster. So, whip out the can opener and paint brushes to spend a few minutes painting the items you are disposing of anyway. 


Most Environmentally Friendly Disposal

The best and most environmentally friendly way is to recycle it.  The down fall is it can get a little pricey and may be hard to find locations that will accept wet paint.  You can call your local transfer station, county landfill, or sanitation department to see if they offer paint recycling or disposal.

If you are feeling philanthropic there are some charities that will accept paint for their use, some of these organizations would be Boy Scouts; they tend to run on a limited budget therefore most troops may take your paint. Some other options would be Habitat for Humanity, which takes in reusable construction and painting materials to build houses for those in need and Global Paint for Charity (located here in Atlanta), this program takes in leftover paint for volunteers to use on houses of the elderly, veterans, and widows so that they may keep their properties looking nice without out having to pay painter fees; they also ship the paint over seas and to cities in United States.
