Neighbors and I here on Patterson have not had yard waste pickup for 3 weeks now.  Anyone know who to call?

Danke,

Called a request in.  Apparently they're behind on yard waste pickup for likely obvious reasons.

They've only been doing ours on bulk pickup day. Not sure if that's because there's so much of it or because they are behind.

They said the trucks were needing repair. But this is a LONG time.

Whatever.  They're the same trucks as the trash and recycling trucks.  Call them.  They came within a few days.

My neighbor across the street has had theirs on the curb for several weeks also. They have a lot of bags. I hope it doesn't rain hard.

So I was going out of town on Thursday. My trash had still not been picked up, but as I was grabbing last minute supplies, I saw the truck on Clifton. Because my can was full of cat litter, I left it out on the curb, hoping they'd make it down my way.
When I got home Sunday, my can was gone. Just gone. I don't see the cans my neighbors usually leave near the street either, but haven't seen them to ask if theirs were also taken.
Anyone?
Beuhler?
wtf?

3 Weeks ago the garbage truck pulled up, grabbed our can, crushed it in the truck and kept on going. I was out in the front yard when it happened and they yelled something at me, but I couldn't tell what. I stopped them the next week and they said my can had broken and that I would have a new one in a week. I had it later that day...  Clue had turned the complaint in to the city as well.   :(~

Who did he turn the complaint in to? My can did have a crack in it, but it wasn't that bad.
thanks!

edit: this is what I see for "stolen bin" which seems pretty f*cked up. How do I know if it was stolen or if the city workers took it? Do I just say they took it?

If your bin was stolen, you are responsible for replacement. Both garbage and recycling bins are replaced at a cost of $70.00.
Send check to: Office of Solid Waste Services
68 Mitchell St., Ste. 4800
Atlanta, GA 30303
Include the address and phone number where the new bin is to be delivered.

thanks y'all. I just acted like they took it with the trash and they're eventually going to send me another one.

Ours was not broken at all before the trash ran that day!

When I went out this morning to put the last of the household trash in my herbie curbie (placed at the curb last night) it was full of someone else's bagged trash.  I guess one of my CoA neighbors got sick of waiting and went the UniD route.

As wacky as this is considering the City has admitted to significant issues, I did 311 requests online for all my services and all were addressed within 2 days. I went 4 weeks with no yard pickup, 2 weeks with no recycling, and a couple days with no trash pickup.

The thing that amazed me is that I saw a truck doing missed yard waste pickup Saturday. it was definitely NOT stopping and picking up all yard waste. Seemed very much targeted to the 311 calls.
I lost my SS card, so I guess I will some day have to get another one. And, no its not 000-00-0001. - Denise
