Trash/Recycling:

Throughout the term of your application, from setup to breakdown, the applicant(s) must properly dispose of waste and garbage so the area is returned to a clean condition.

Alpharetta is a "Go Green" community and strongly supports recycling. Please do your part and create a recycling plan for your event.

Food events or events creating large amounts of trash may require additional dumpsters. The City of Alpharetta does not provide dumpsters, but they can be rented from local sanitation companies. (See FLIPSFilm Vendor listings for partial list of vendors who serve this community)

Estimate (1) eight yard dumpster for every increment of 500 people attending the event.

Some events may require street sweeping to properly clean the area. The city does not provide street sweeping services, so please plan appropriately.
