Gwinnett County Government is allowing residential solid waste haulers to temporarily modify their operations in order to protect the safety of their employees and customers.

Under a local emergency order signed today by Board of Commissioners Chairman Charlotte Nash, the following changes will be made to solid waste service in unincorporated Gwinnett County:

Only bagged trash placed inside trash carts and recycling materials placed inside recycling carts or bins will be picked up; in other words, excess household trash or recycling materials placed outside the containers will not be picked up.

Bulky waste, white goods, and yard waste collections will be suspended temporarily.

The order also strongly encourages residents to place all trash and recycling inside bags and to tie those bags before placing them in carts to eliminate loose debris in the containers or on the ground.

Gwinnett County and the solid waste haulers will continue to closely monitor the situation and to make additional changes as needed.

This local emergency order is effective March 25, at 7 p.m. through April 7,at 11:59 p.m.
