Can I place a dumpster in the street in Smyrna?

Mayor and Council | City of Smyrna, GA

Can I place a dumpster in the street in Smyrna?

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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna. If a dumpster were placed on street, it could block the vision of drivers and cause harm to others. Even though the city of Smyrna 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 place or maintain, or cause to be placed or maintained, in any of the streets or in any of the easements, or on any of the public sidewalks of the city, any obstruction of any kind or character whatever, except by consent of the mayor and council, given at a regularly constituted meeting of that body and entered upon the minutes of the meeting at which the consent is given.

Where can I find more information?
