Special Saturday Bulky Item Pickup Days for Every Street in the City



The City of Decatur offers Neighborhood Clean-Up days once a year to help residents dispose of bulky items that don't easily fit into Pay-As-You-Throw bags. Each street in the city is assigned to a Saturday between March and June. Dates for the 2018 event are now available.
