Garbage Pickup & Recycling

Waste Industries is now part of GFL Environmental. You may begin to see new containers and trucks in the coming weeks, but rest assured it's the same great team that you've always known sporting a new coat of paint. The transition will be seamless to our customers and there’s nothing you need to do on your end. However, we just want to keep you informed so that you are not alarmed if you receive a cart that’s a different color than your neighbor or if you see a different color truck servicing your container. I can assure you that we are committed to providing you with the same level of service you’ve always received.
Green Today, Green for Life!


Garbage pickup services are provided for customers inside the Villa Rica city limits. The City of Villa Rica contracts with GFL Environmental to collect garbage for residential and commercial customers. 

After establishing service with the City of Villa Rica, residential customers will receive a specially marked 96-gallon cart.  Garbage should be bagged and the cart should be placed at the curb on the day of pickup. GFL Environmental will only pick up garbage that is INSIDE THE CART.  If additional carts are needed, please contact Customer Service at 678-785-1000.  

Be sure to have garbage on the curb the night before pickup.  Pickups start at 7 a.m. and can go as late as 8 p.m.  Waste Industries will pick up as scheduled unless there is some unforeseen problem that keeps them from doing so.  In this case, garbage pickup will follow as soon as possible.  If you fail to have your cart out, it will be picked up on your next regularly scheduled pickup day.
