Put Trash In Its Place
PURCHASE/SPONSOR A TRASH CAN
If you’re looking for a solution that will keep trash off the sidewalks in your neighborhood, consider purchasing a trash can from Keep Atlanta Beautiful, Inc.
To help solve our city’s litter problems, we will arrange for installation and maintenance of trash cans that will be permanently placed in your neighborhood, in locations selected by you. Through our partnership with the Department of Public Works, the trash cans will be installed and maintained by them.
There are a number of funding opportunities available to neighborhoods for raising funds to purchase trash cans, then leave the rest to us!
The process is simple:
Decide how many cans you need, the size of the cans, 32 or 36 gallon, and where they will be permanently located in your neighborhood. Cans must be placed on public property, i.e., city rights of way, sidewalks, medians, etc.
Identify funding sources for your cans, such as NPU or Mayor’s Office grants; Federal, State and Foundation grants; fundraising events; and private sponsors as a few examples.
