Can I place a dumpster in the street in Acworth?

Acworth, GA

Can I place a dumpster in the street in Acworth?


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 Acworth does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. City of Acworth 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 trying their best to provide safety to everyone. 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.

No person shall put any trash, wood, lumber, boxes, bricks or other obstructions in any street or sidewalk without permission of the proper authorities of the city.
(Code 1983, § 18-4)
