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

Some Fayette County governments change meeting schedules

Can I place a dumpster in the street in Fayette 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?  

Fayette County does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. Fayette County will allow a temporary rental dumpster to be placed in the street as long as the person who is renting the dumpster applies and receives a permit or written consent. The county wants to be sure they do everything they can to help its citizens by helping to keep everyone safe. Also, as a suggestion, it is always a good idea to look at the HOA for the neighborhood you live in to see if they have restrictions for items in the street and/or the driveway.

The location of private utilities upon the public right-of-way shall be permitted, subject to the following conditions:
No private utility locations upon the public right-of-way shall be allowed unless the proposed utility location is within a residential subdivision, as defined by appendix IV of this Code, and that said subdivision is governed by a Property Owners Association (POA) as defined under OCGA § 44-3-220 et seq.
No private utility locations upon the public right-of-way shall be permitted, unless a license is granted, by the board of commissioners. As a condition of such license, the applicant must agree in writing to hold the Board of Commissioners of Spalding County harmless for any damages and/or liability resulting from the presence of said private utility upon the public right-of-way.
The granting of a license shall not convey any property interest in the county's right-of-way whatsoever.
The county may withdraw the license at will and upon doing so, the private utility will be removed in no more than thirty (30) days.
All provisions of the Code in conflict with this section are hereby repealed
