The DeKalb County Sanitation Division will deploy 46 new automated side loader (ASL) sanitation collection trucks by December 2019. Operated by a single driver, the technologically advanced garbage trucks increase efficiency, reduce costs, and allow the county to service a growing number of customers.

“With the support of the Board of Commissioners, DeKalb County’s sanitation division fleet now includes more efficient, cost-effective trucks that will help to reduce workplace injuries,” said DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond.

In the past 10 months, the cities of Pine Lake and Stone Mountain switched from private providers to DeKalb County’s sanitation service, adding approximately 3,000 more homes to the county’s coverage area. In January 2020, the city of Doraville is expected to join the service area adding another 2,500 customers.
