Waste Pro will not run on New Year's Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. When any of these holidays fall on or before your scheduled pick-up day, your pick-up day will be rescheduled to the following day, including Saturday.
If your garbage can is damaged or needs to be replaced, please call Waste Pro have a new one delivered to you. This also applies to recycling carts.
The City of Statham does not bill for garbage and recycling. Waste Pro bills directly.
There will be separate trucks for the garbage and recycling. All garbage will be picked up curbside and must be bagged. Do not put ashes, paint, paint thinner or any other building material in or on the can. All carts must be placed no more than two feet from the roadside, and handles must be toward the house with the opening facing the street to allow the arm of the truck to be able to pick up and dump it without requiring the workers to exit the truck.

Leaf and Limb Pick-Up
THE CITY WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO REMOVE EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF LIMBS AND DEBRIS. EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF LIMBS AND DEBRIS WILL CARRY A $125 CHARGE PER LOAD THAT WILL NEED TO BE PRE-PAID. IF YOU HAVE TREES CUT DOWN ON YOUR PROPERTY OR IF ARE CLEARING EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF LAND, YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THEM REMOVED BY A TREE REMOVAL SERVICE.
However, if you live inside the city limits and require general minimal yard maintenance such as removal of small limbs, trimmings and debris, we will pick those up at no charge. Call City Hall at (770) 725-5455 ext. 2006 or 2015 to schedule a pickup. Please be sure to stack debris lengthwise at the road, and no limbs should exceed 12 foot in length. Do not place limbs under power or phone lines.

The dog park is open for business. There is no charge to use the park, and you do not have to be a resident of Statham. The park will be open every day from dawn until dusk.
