Important Notice - for curbside recycling and trash collection

Bagged trash containing food must be secured in a closed container. Law enforcement personnel have recently seen coyotes tearing into trash bags and eating from them.  Bags containing old food at the curb will draw coyotes to your property. Please containerize all trash bags if possible, but especially those with any food in them.

The City of Smyrna Recycling Center no longer accepts Christmas Trees for Recycling.  There is an annual "Bring One for the Chipper" event for Christmas Tree Recycling. 

For large trash and yard waste disposal, contact Public Works at 770-431-2850 or Advanced Disposal at 770-436-6126.
