Free curbside bulk waste collection

Atlanta City Manager David Cockrell said that free bulk waste curbside collection is scheduled in Atlanta from November 16th through November 20th.  “Residents will be serviced on their normal collection day.  So if your normal trash collection day is Monday, then your bulk waste will be collected on Monday, Cockrell said.”

“This is a great opportunity to make the community more attractive, get rid of unwanted junk and save money and time by avoiding trips to the landfill”, Cockrell said.

Acceptable items include household furniture, outdoor furniture, clothing, green waste (properly bagged), sticks and limbs that are bundled not exceeding four feet.

There are some limitations.  The City will not accept white good or appliances, electronic waste, TV’s, tires, paints, oil, batteries or other hazardous waste.  The City also reserves the right the refuse any item deemed to pose a health or safety risk.  Unacceptable items will be left at the curb.

Water Quality Notice for City of Atlanta

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has notified the CITY OF ATLANTA TX0340001 that the drinking water being supplied to customers exceeded the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for total trihalomethanes.  The U>S> Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has established the MCL for total trihalomethanes at 0.080 milligrams per liter (mg/L) based on a locational running annual average (LRAA) and has determined that it is a health concern at levels above the MCL.  Analysis of drinking water in your community for total trihalomethanes indicates a compliance value in quarter three of 2015 of 0.083 mg/L for DBP2-01.
Trihalomethanes are a group of volatile organic compounds that are formed when chlorine, added to the water during the treatment process for disinfection, reacts with naturally-occurring matter in the water.
Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidney, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
You do not need to use an alternative water supply.  However, if you have health concerns, you may want to talk to your doctor to get more information about how this may affect you.
We are taking the following actions to address this issue:  The City purchases water from Texarkana Water Utilities.  We have instructed them to deliver water in compliance with standards.  City crews are flushing lines.  Additional testing is planned.
Please share this information with all people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (i.e. people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact Bobby Washington at 903-796-7153.
