Can I place a dumpster in the street in Decatur?


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 Decatur does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. City of Decatur, zip code 30030, 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. The city 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 utility shall obtain all construction, building and other permits and approvals required by City Code and by state and federal law. In addition, the holder of a utility permit shall comply with all requirements of laws, shall complete work in a rights-of-way as to not cause any unnecessary or unauthorized obstructions of sidewalks, streets, waterways or railways, and shall be responsible for all work done in the rights-of-ways regardless of who performs the work. No obstruction of or excavation in the rights-of-way may be performed when seasonally prohibited or when conditions are unreasonable for such work, except in the case of an emergency as outlined in section 86-182 of this article. Registration in accordance with this article does not relieve an applicant of responsibility for compliance with Chapter 96 of Part III of this Code.

Where can I find more information?
