The Special Sugar Hill Bag System

Buy Your Bags

The City of Sugar Hill does not bill you for garbage service. If you choose the Special Sugar Hill Bag System you must buy and use specially marked Sugar Hill bags that will hold 32 gallons of trash from the following retail stores:

  • S&S Ace Hardware- 4300 Buford Dr
  • Kroger- 6001 Cumming Highway
  • Kroger- 400 Peachtree Industrial Blvd
  • Publix- 5885 Cumming Highway
  • Publix- 1000 Peachtree Industrial Blvd

The cost of these bags includes your curbside household garbage and recycling service.

Place Household Garbage in the Bag

Place household garbage in specially marked bags. If you have a bulky item that won't fit in the bag (like an old lawn chair), tape a bag to the item and we will pick it up.

Questions about these items can be directed to Advanced Disposal’s customer service representatives at (770) 887-6063

HINT #1: Minimize your garbage removal costs by RECYCLING as many items as you can.

HINT #2: All bags MUST be secured at the top prior to collection.

Take it to the Curb Early

Place your trash at the curb on the evening prior to your collection day or by 6:00 AM the morning of your scheduled pickup.

Put it in Plain View

Place your garbage bags in an area of plain view within 5 feet of the curb so our truck drivers won't miss them. Remember some trucks may be out in your neighborhood when it is still dark outside. DON'T put bags behind shrubbery.

TIP: Placing your correct address on your mailbox will help our drivers identify your house as well as public service crews in the event of an emergency.

65 or 95-Gallon Service Carts

You now have a choice. You may subscribe to containerized waste service as an alternative to the bag program. Only residential solid waste that is bagged and placed in a 65 or 95-gallon cart provided by Advanced Disposal shall be collected.

Please call Advanced Disposal for current pricing.Residents are required to pay the prorated amount due at the time service is established in addition to paying one quarter's advanced billing. Advanced Disposal must receive the prorated amount and first quarter advanced payment and a deposit before new service will begin.

Delinquent Accounts

When payment is not received by the first day of the first month in which the quarterly statement for service is to be rendered, service will be stopped and the account considered delinquent.

All delinquent accounts are subject to stoppage of service without notice. If a delinquent account is not paid within 30 days, the company will cease all refuse collection for that account. Services shall be resumed only after payment of accumulated fees, a $25.00 restart fee and a security deposit of $102.00 or the equivalent of two full quarters of service fees have been received from the resident.

Cart Collection Guidelines

All garbage must be bagged, properly secured, and placed inside the 65-gallon or 95-gallon cart provided by Advanced Disposal.

Advanced Disposal and the City of Sugar Hill have agreed to use only the 65-gallon and 95-gallon cart provided by Advanced Disposal. The carts must be placed curbside, clearly seen and within 5 feet of the road. Any additional waste placed outside the container must be placed in the specially marked Sugar Hill bags described in The Bag System. Solid waste in bags other than the specially marked Sugar Hill bags placed outside the cart will not be collected. If residents do use nonconforming containers or bags, the resident's garbage will not be picked up, since this is not part of the city's contract.

All solid waste and recycling items must be placed curbside by 7:00 AM on your scheduled day of collection. Both services are provided the same day of the week. Advanced Disposal will accept typical household garbage properly secured in the appropriate bags of 50 pounds or less.

For items (less than 50 pounds), such as sofas, tables, chairs, etc., which are too bulky to fit in an Advanced Disposal cart, you must place the item at the curb and attach a special Sugar Hill bag to each item.

Items heavier than 50 pounds, i.e., stoves, water heaters, etc. may be collected by making special arrangements with Advanced Disposal. Call 770-887-6063 (a Sugar Hill bag must be attached to each item).

If you have an item that won't fit in the cart (like an old lawn chair), you may tape a Sugar Hill "bag" to the item and we will pick it up.

All freon-bearing appliances (refrigerators, freezers, AC units) can be picked up after the freon is removed by qualified personnel. Please contact Advanced Disposal for more details at 770-887-6063

Things that you don't want to put in the bag that we cannot pick up are:

  • Tires and automotive parts, Paints, Oil, and chemicals
