Can I place a dumpster in the street in Coweta County?


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? 

Coweta County 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 Coweta County. If a dumpster were placed on street, it could block the vision of drivers and cause harm to others. Even though Coweta County 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.

It shall be unlawful for any person to obstruct, encroach upon, or injure materially any part of any county road or county rights-of-way. For purposes of this section, the term "obstruct" shall include, without limitation, the causing of any buildup of rock, gravel, mud, dirt, chemicals, or other materials by continued ingress and egress of vehicles or of any natural waters dammed or redirected by diversion to an extent which presents a hazard to the traveling public.
In addition to the penalties and fines provided for in chapter 1, section 1-15, any person who unlawfully obstructs, encroaches upon, or injures said public road may be required to pay restitution to the county for the costs of removal of said obstructions or encroachments and the costs of repairs of the public road incurred by the county, including any costs associated with traffic management provided, however, that such costs shall be limited to those costs which are directly incurred from such damages. Costs incurred for traffic management may include, but not be limited to, costs incurred for flagging, signing, or provision of detours, provided that these activities are directly caused by the obstruction, encroachment, or injury to the county road or right-of-way.
