Focuses on simplifying services and new biweekly recycling schedule for 2022.

“It’s a Beautiful Day in Lawrenceville!” is the new slogan for the City of Lawrenceville’s Sanitation Department.   Launching this month, the City is making an effort to simplify its services for customers through smart infographics, calendars, direct mail, and a positive focus.

“Lawrenceville is a beautiful city,” said Mayor David Still.  “Our Streets and Sanitation employees play a huge role in keeping our city beautiful on a daily basis through the many services they provide.  And what better way to be greeted than, ‘It’s a beautiful day in Lawrenceville!’ “

Over the last three years, the City of Lawrenceville has made several changes in its sanitation operations to improve efficiency, including reducing weekly trash collection from five days to four in order to allow one day per week for employees to work on city projects.

“Many customers don’t realize how many services we offer,” said Barry Mock, Assistant City Manager and Public Works Director.  “Lawrenceville’s Sanitation Department offers eight different services every week, many of which require a separate vehicle.” 

A beloved free service of many long-time residents is the annual leaf service.  From November 1 – April 30, the leaf truck travels throughout the city limits Monday through Friday, gathering leaves residents have raked to the curb.   Additional services include weekly trash collection, free mulch, curbside limb and grass collection, prescheduled large item pick up, curbside recycling, and a new glass recycling drop-off station.  

The City of Lawrenceville opened a glass recycling drop-off station in October 2021, accepting clear and colored glass, seven days per week, 7 am to 7 pm.  Located at Lawrenceville Public Works, 435 W. Pike Street, users do not need to be a city resident to utilize the glass recycling station.

Another focus of the “It’s a beautiful day in Lawrenceville” campaign will be the change to a biweekly recycling schedule beginning January 2022.  Faced with increasing costs related to recycling and strong community support for continued curbside recycling service, the Lawrenceville City Council made the decision to switch to a cost-saving biweekly plan.  

Residential addresses will be designated as a “blue” or “orange” recycling week.  After December 1, residents may determine their status by visiting lville.city/MyCityServices and following the task bar on the left. Prior to December 31, City Sanitation staff will also affix a blue or orange sticker to each residential recycling bin, indicating the assigned week.  Customers with questions after December 1 should contact customer service at customerservice@lawrencevillega.org or 678.407.6675.

The City’s Customer Service Department also plays an important role in ensuring city sanitation and utility customers experience a beautiful day in Lawrenceville.  Customers are able to complete applications and paperwork online, schedule service, set-up a bank draft, apply for a rebate and much more. 

“The City has spent considerable time evaluating its Customer Service Department, streamlining its processes, upgrading online payment options, and adding additional online customer service options,” said Keith Lee, Director of Finance.  “It’s a team effort.”
