Can I place a dumpster in the street in Chamblee?

Is Chamblee becoming the hottest 'hood in the metro? - Curbed Atlanta

Can I place a dumpster in the street in Chamblee?

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

If the circumstances arise and there is no other place to put the dumpster except on the street, contact Chamblee's planning and zoning community development at (770) 986-5010 to apply for a variance. This will allow you to receive special permission to put the dumpster where you will need it.

Where can I find more information?
