Garbage Collection

The Augusta Engineering Department has projected that all storm debris in roadways and on right-of-ways will be cut and removed by the end of the week. Environmental Services will be collecting private debris as part of citizens’ regular trash pickup as long as the piles of debris are within the following guidelines:

  • Piles no larger than 5ft x 5ft x 10ft;
  • No single item larger than 5 feet long;
  • No items heavier than 50 pounds;
  • Do not place items under power lines or near other obstructions like mailboxes, vehicles, and meters.

Piles larger than these guidelines might not be collected and could be subject to additional collection fees. If a contractor is hired to cut up or clean up private storm debris, Augusta requires that the contractor haul off the materials, not place them at the curb.
