Curbside leaf / brush pickup completion

May 24th, 2016 by City of Johnstown

The City has completed the spring curbside collection of yard debris (leaves, limbs, brush, etc.). The City’s curbside collection program is operated for a limited time twice yearly; spring and fall. Therefore, any yard waste that you leave curbside in front of your home will not be picked up by the City; it is your responsibility to properly dispose of this material.

The following yard waste disposal options are available:

  1. Bring yard waste to the city drop-off site, located on West Main Street near the intersection with Cayadutta Street. It is open to city residents seven (7) days a week during daylight hours.
  1. Transport yard waste to the Fulton County Landfill Transfer Station (you must purchase a permit from the City Clerk).
  1. Hire a commercial hauler to dispose of the yard waste.

Please contact the City Engineer’s office at 736-4014 with any questions.
