Dear Valued Customer:

New garbage carts will be delivered on Monday July 16th, Tuesday July 17th and Wednesday July 18th. Advanced Disposal will pick up the old cart and deliver the new cart at the same time. Please make sure to have your old cart ready to be picked up on your current scheduled pickup day.

The new scheduled pickup days will begin on Tuesday July 24th and Thursday July 26th. All customers were mailed a letter containing a map that illustrates the new schedule and pickup days. You may view this map on our website at A larger map will be available at City Hall.

Commercial customers with dumpsters will be receiving a separate letter with instructions on their pickup schedule.

We appreciate your patience with this transition. We understand there will be some growing pains but please be aware that we will correct issues as promptly as possible.

CART PLACEMENT:  Placement of the cart at the curb is very important.  Please place your cart no more than 5 feet away from the curb with the handle facing toward the curb. Place your cart on the curb no later than 6:00 a.m. on your scheduled pickup day. Only carts that are provided to you by the City of Hawkinsville will be emptied. Personal carts/cans will NOT be emptied. See below on how to request additional carts.

Household garbage includes any waste generated on a daily basis.  This does not include tires, hazardous waste, furniture, mattresses, appliances, carpet, liquid paint etc.  Please bag any loose items to keep them from blowing while the cart is emptied.  Also, please do not put hot ashes in the container.  The cart remains the property of the City of Hawkinsville and must not be painted, abused or mutilated.  If your cart needs to be repaired or replaced, please call us at the number shown above. The customer is responsible for the cleanliness of their cart.
