GFL Sanitation Services


Beginning on Wednesday, January 3, 2024, GFL will begin the trash cart reclamation project in Fairburn, as the City's sanitation services transition to Amwaste. To execute this initiative seamlessly, GFL has enlisted a reputable third-party vendor deploying multiple teams across the City. The project will adhere strictly to regular business days and hours.

Over a 30-day span, trash carts (blue, green and black) will be methodically collected from the curbside of all residences. Trash carts with the following names/logos will be collected: GFL, CLM and Waste Industries. Any personal cans or trash carts that does not resemble a typical homeowner's cart, will not be collected.

The last day of bulk and recycling pickup services by GFL will be Wednesday, December 27, 2023. PLEASE NOTE: For residents that receive back door recycling services, the bins will not be returned once collected.

The last day of trash pickup service by GFL will be Wednesday, January 3, 2024. 

Once the recycling and trash carts are placed curbside, they should remain curbside until collected by GFL. Please DO NOT add any additional trash or recyclables to these carts after they have been emptied. 

For questions, please contact GFL at 770-474-9273 or visit their website at
