Smarter Service

Smarter Service


Augusta Solid Waste is no longer a one size fits all service. We know every customer is different, so we are offer options to better meet your needs – like new service areas, once a week pickups, recycling rewards, different sizing and quantities of garbage and recycling carts, community events and more!

Service Areas

Augusta Solid Waste serves all of Richmond County, with the exception of the city limits of Hephzibah and Blythe. If you have questions regarding your inclusion in the new service area please call 311 .

One Pickup Per Week

Customers receive one day a week pickups for services, with all collections made on the same day for: garbage, recycling, bulk waste and yard waste. The elimination of the extra day of service allows for a much smarter collection service for both you and Augusta Solid Waste.

Recycling Rewards

As a part of our Cleaner. Greener. Smarter. initiative, Augusta Solid Waste has partnered with Recycling Perks to offer residents a recycling rewards program to encourage residents to participate in recycling efforts. Signing up for the program is free and you earn points every time your recyclables out are collected. For more information on the recycling rewards program visit the Recycling page.

Tire Recycling

Augusta Solid Waste does not collect scrap tires during pickups, but instead offers monthly tire recycling events for Richmond County residents to recycle their tires, up to 5 per month, for free. For more information on upcoming tire recycling events please visit the Community Events page.
