What a laugh!!! Roswellians are forced to use the city's expensive garbage service but then THE CITY MAKES YOU HAUL YOUR BULKY STUFF TO A REMOTE LOCATION AND ONLY DURING A SPECIFIED TIME PERIOD ???!!! You people are crazy !! When I moved to Cobb County and escaped from over-priced, Business-Hostile Roswell, I got my pick of many, many garbage service companies for as little as $12 a month, and I can put out "bulky" items anytime I want. I don't have to load it into my car to take to another location! (LMAO at the visual of you Roswell drones lugging heavy stuff to your cars and then driving over to Hembree Road) I can't believe the residents of Roswell are still putting up with this government monopoly! P-R-I-V-A-T-I-Z-E, people, P-R-I-V-A-T-I-Z-E !!!! Stop licking the boots of your masters! Or better yet - move out of that nazi town with its never-ending ordinances against everything and its loser council, mayor and administrator.
