Beginning January 1, 2012, all garbage from households subscribing to franchised garbage service will be collected curbside in unincorporated areas of Forsyth County unless the subscriber has provided the County with a doctor’s note for back yard collection. Those subscribers with a medically verified need will receive back yard service for the same price as curbside collection.
This change is being implemented to increase safety, enhance efficiency and minimize costs for subscribing households. Subscribing to weekly garbage collection service is a great value. The current monthly rate is only $14.92 ($3.44 per week). If you live in an unincorporated area of Forsyth County and would like more information about franchised garbage collection service, please call 703-2436.
