Garbage Pickup Changes for Holiday

Regular collection begins on Thursday of this week.

Here is this week's garbage pickup schedule for Brookhaven and Chamblee from the DeKalb County Sanitation Department:

  • Garbage pickup: No collection Tuesday, Jan. 1. That service will move to Jan. 2 with the regular collection schedule resuming Jan. 3.
  • Yard waste and blue box recycling services will be delayed one day through Jan. 4.

Better rethink your strategy. Dekalb County still will provide 93.78% of all of our services. Better not cut off our nose to spite our face. Hey! I love Brookhaven! But I think dissing the hand that will deliver most of your stuffin's is a bad idea. And I love you too. We have a city now. Lets be positive. No more negativity John Q and friends.

Still dependent on DeKalb County? That’s funny! I am still running into folks that think they have completely succeeded from DeKalb County! The one I liked best was the lady that profusely praised Rep. Mike Jacobs for getting her children out of DeKalb County schools! Special hamburger and a Cheerwine?

Get a life, people. Someone made an unintentional mistake that should not disrupt too many lives except, apparently, those who have no life.. It must be nice to have such a fulfilling life that people have the time to post numerous times daily on contrived issues of the day such as a mix up on garbage pickup during a Holiday week. I am curious to see how long it takes for some individuals to post a congratulations on a job well done or, perhaps, grudgingly acknowledging that some things emanating from the Brookhaven formation are working out well. I am not holding my breath.

Phil, Well said. The Brookhaven Patch is nothing more than a conduit for haters and naysayers...and Tim Darnell advocates this so he can get clicks. I wonder if the advertisers on the Patch - most of which are piped in from Google AdSense - know what they are attached to here. Perhaps we should all make it a point to NOT do business with those here who are helping to fund this cesspool. Surely there has to be another alternative.

Thanks for the post, and that's the one thing that I like about http://www.kingrecycling.ca is that they let you know if they're going to be a day late or not. Because the one that me and my wife had before, they would never tell us. So it was sometimes a gamble of whether they would show up or not.
