Coweta County Garbage Bag Program

Questions? Call 770-254-3785

Coweta County offers disposal of household waste at compactor sites located across the county. The household waste must be contained in Coweta County garbage bags. Garbage service is a'"utility" similar to electricity, water or telephone and residents pay according to the amount of service used.  Recyclables brought in a separate container can be dropped off free.  Learn more about reducing your garbage costs through recycling

Convenience is the key to this "bag" program. You make the decision to pay your garbage bill by the week or month based on the number of bags purchased, at a time most convenient to the family and you pay only for the amount of garbage generated.

Garbage Bag Purchase Price
The price you pay for Coweta County garbage bags includes fees required to cover the cost of operation of the manned compactor/recycling centers and the cost for disposal of the garbage.

$3.00 for 32-gallon bag –includes the cost of the bag and your garbage disposal fee.
