Garbage & Recycling


Residential customers in the City of Lilburn receive garbage and recycling collection service at a reduced rate, which the City of Lilburn has contracted through Waste Management. Property owners pay a sanitation fee of $18.11/month on their tax bill.

Customers are given wheeled carts and recycling bins, which may be placed at the curb starting at 7 p.m. on the day before your collection day. Bins must be removed by 7 p.m. on the day your garbage is picked up.
