Can I place a dumpster in the street in Johns Creek?

City Of Johns Creek Case Study

Can I place a dumpster in the street in Johns Creek?

What is allowed?

Renting a dumpster for medium to large home clean-outs and other projects is an excellent idea. We are very flexible about where we set our dumpsters, however, we still must comply with city, county and state laws. If the driveway is large enough we can almost always place a dumpster on private driveways, and parking areas. Some cities or counties will allow dumpsters to be placed on a curb or in city streets either with or without a permit, however, there are some that do not allow dumpsters to be placed anywhere besides private property.

What is not allowed? 

The City of Johns Creek does not allow dumpsters to be placed on any public property such as the street, or sidewalk. They do this in order to promote safety for all their residents of Johns Creek. If a dumpster were placed on street, it could block the vision of drivers and cause harm to others. Even though the city of Johns Creek only permits dumpsters on private property there are benefits. A benefit to putting a dumpster on private property versus the street is it will decrease the amount of unlawful dumping. Although unlawful dumping may not seem like an issue it can quickly become an one to you, the person who rented the dumpster because if there are restricted items put in the dumpster the renter could be charged additional fees and may be forced to dispose of the item(s) separately.

  • (a)
    No person shall place or cause to be placed in any street and sidewalk: debris, rubbish, irrigation water, boxes, displays, signs, poles, goods, merchandise, or any other object so as to impede and endanger traffic on streets and sidewalks.
    No person or company shall construct or maintain a drive, yard, or lot constructed of gravel, pebbles, or stone in such a manner that vehicles cause loose stones, pebbles or gravel to be thrown on to the adjacent street and sidewalk.
    Any personal property placed on the right-of-way following an eviction shall be removed within 24 hours of physical eviction, unless an extension of time is requested on behalf of the evicted tenant. For purposes of this chapter such property is deemed abandoned property two hours following eviction, unless the landlord by contract specifies a shorter time. If the property is not removed within 24 hours, the city may commence removal and cite the property owner. The penalty assessed shall be 125 percent of the cost the city incurs in removing the property.
