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

Can I place a dumpster in the street in Fulton 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?  

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

Before installing or relocating any utility facility which may occupy or encroach on the right-of-way acquired for county projects, or which is part of the county road system, the utility owner and/or contractor must obtain authorization from the county department of public works. For all initial installation a written permit will be executed. Also, for relocation or adjustment of utility facilities for which a written permit has not previously been issued, and which are not covered by an indemnity agreement, a permit will be executed. Except as may be provided by state or federal laws, placement of a utility facility within the public rights-of-way or public roads shall not be deemed to give any person a property or other interest in any particular location within the public rights-of-way or public roads, or any preference over any other person issued a permit to utilize the public rights-of-way or public roads. The county reserves the right to designate where a particular utility facility may be located for the purposes of protecting current or future use of its public roads to promote the public health, safety or welfare.
