The City of Duluth Public Works Department will strive to be known as a leader in the delivery of quality services. It is our goal to be recognized for our responsiveness, reliability, efficiency in use of fiscal resources, and the integrity that serves as the foundation of every job we do.
We believe that our employees are our most valuable resource; it is through their dedication that we will be successful.
Our Core Values Are:
- Delivery on commitments
- Treat others as we wish to be treated
- To be part of the solution, not part of the problem
The Public Works Department has four divisions:
- Building Maintenance (includes the Town Green and Fountain)
- Fleet Maintenance
- Right of way/Landscape Maintenance
- Street Maintenance (including sidewalks and signs)
In addition, we are responsible for construction and placement of Veterans Markers & Flags twice per year, Holiday Decorations and support at all City events.
- To report street light outages: Check for a pole number and call GA Power at 888 891-0938 or Jackson EMC at 1-800 462-3691
Christmas Tree Disposal:
Trees may be picked up at the curb by Republic Services, your garbage company, on Wednesdays. You must place a garbage bag on the tree. If your tree is large, please cut it in half for easier disposal.
Dumpsters will be closed Saturday, January 7, due to inclement weather. Dumpsters will reopen Monday, January 9, at 3:00 p.m. Dumpsters will also be closed on Monday, January 16, in observation of Martin Luther King Day. Note our new hours for dumpsters, Monday - Friday 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays 8:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Republic Services (your garbage company) will take your yard debris at the curb. The fee for this service is $88.74/ year.
Large Items picked up at the curb:
Republic Services will take items like mattresses, furniture, appliances, household items at the curb. YOU MUST CALL (678 963-2800) within 24 hours of Wednesday pick up to ask for this special service. You must also attach a Duluth trash bag to the item.
Dead Animal Removal:
The Public Works Department can ONLY report dead animals on the roadside to Gwinnett County. We do NOT have the proper equipment or an incinerator to handle this task. The County follows a schedule for pick-up and consequently animals may stay for a few days before they are removed. Thanks for your patience.
Gas Line Replacement:
Atlanta Gas Light (AGL) will be replacing gas lines in the Norman Downes neighborhood. This project will take several weeks, depending on the weather. Residents should receive information posted on door hangers. AGL will repair any damage to yards and streets that are affected. Old lines are being abandoned and phased out for new lines to provide more dependable, long term service. The City is working with AGL and will monitor the work to ensure any affected roads are repaired correctly.
