Dear Valued Customer,
Athens Services continues providing an essential service to our communities. We remain committed to providing exceptional service to our customers during the pandemic, while protecting the safety of our essential service workers, customers, and our communities.
Collection Service Changes
Athens Services is temporarily changing collection services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the health and safety of everyone is a high priority and out of an abundance of caution, effective immediately, we will be collecting all of your refuse, recyclable, and green waste barrels with one or possibly two collection trucks. This will allow us to keep trucks and drivers to a minimum during the COVID-19 emergency period and also minimize the amount of time trash is exposed to the community. Athens is continuing to use mechanical sorting equipment and limited personnel to recover recyclable materials from waste at our materials recovery facilities.
In addition, during this “stay at home” period, we realize that neighborhoods and communities are busier than normal with more activity and we want to help keep your neighborhoods safe. As this is only a temporary change to our operations during this COVID-19 emergency period, residents should continue to separate materials in their respective barrels as usual. Please be sure that all barrels are set out by 6am on your collection day.
We will continue to notify you of any new developments as circumstances change. We appreciate your support and understanding as we adjust to the new norms during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please feel free to contact Athens Services at 888-336-6100 with any questions or visit www.athensservices.com for more information.
