Can I place a dumpster in the street in Clayton 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?  

Clayton County does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. Clayton 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.

  • Any person who shall violate the terms of this article, or who shall excavate or cut any public road in the 
  • county without first obtaining a permit therefor, may be subject to punishment in accordance
  • (a)
    Any person shall obtain a permit prior to the installation, construction, maintenance, renewal,
     removal and relocation of pipes, mains, conduits, cables, wires, poles, towers, drains or
     appliances of any utility in, on, along, over or under the public roads of the county.
    (b)
    Application for the permit required by this section shall be made in writing to the director of
    transportation and development. Such application shall specifically describe the nature, extent
    and location of the portion of the public roads affected. As a condition precedent to the granting of
    a permit, the county engineer may require the applicant to furnish an indemnity bond or other
     acceptable security conditioned to pay any damages to any part of the county road system or to
     any member of the public caused by work of the applicant under authority of such per
    mit.
