Autumn Schedule Update for 2021

Leaf collection in the City of Athens will begin Nov. 1.

However, because of limited staff and unfilled temporary positions, there will not be a set schedule, Sanitation Director Earl Glaze said. The Sanitation Department will start on the east side of the city limits and work toward the west side, as scheduling allows. Once one round of collection is complete, crews will begin the process again.
