Public Works Announcement

Great American Clean Up is set for Friday, October 12 and 13 

New Rules - please read carefully!

The City of Auburn will be hosting the “Great American Cleanup” October 12th from 8am to 4pm and October 13th  from 8am to 12pm.  During this time, any resident (no businesses please) wishing to bring recyclables, scrap metal, and tires (limit four) to the City of Auburn will be able to do so without charge. 

One big change to this year’s Clean Up is that it is open only to Auburn residents.  State issued ID will be required to show residency in the city limits of Auburn. This means that if you pay City of Auburn property taxes you qualify. You MUST be a City resident. If you have any questions regarding this, please give us a call at 770-963-4002 to avoid any problems.  Also, 4 Standard Tires can be dropped off free of charge. Over four tires, the new pricing is $5 Standard Tire and Commercial, Tires w/Rims $8; and $8 Tractor Tires.

The Great American Cleanup will help Auburn citizens keep the City of Auburn beautiful!!  For more information contact Iris at 770-963-4002 ext 207 or
