Due to escalating rates of COVID-19 throughout the State and DeKalb County, the City of Avondale Estates is taking necessary precautions to reduce potential exposure for its residents and employees. City Hall and other facilities will remain closed to the public. Administration employees will transition to working remotely as responsibilities and circumstances allow. Public Works and Law Enforcement will utilize PPE resources and limit interaction to adhere to social distancing guidelines. 

To ensure continuity of services performed by Public Works, staff will be divided into two crews with staggered schedules to limit employees’ exposure to the virus and eliminate cross contamination. These precautions require a shift back to curbside collection of sanitation rather than backdoor pickup starting Monday, January 11, 2021.  Curbside collection is necessary to enable the reduced crew capacity to collect the garbage on their current schedule. Curbside collection further reduces the potential risk of COVID-19 exposure from household members, gates, fences, or other items when accessing backyard receptacles. Please have garbage at the curb by 7:15 a.m. on your regularly scheduled collection day to avoid a missed pickup. The crews will continue to provide backdoor service for those households that were given a waiver in the spring. If you do not already have a waiver and are physically unable to bring your garbage to the curb, visit to make a request. To view the schedule and guidelines visit  

Contacting administration staff during this time is best done through the City’s website or by email. Requests for services and outlets to express concerns are available online at for your convenience. Additionally, you can access permit applications at Should the form or item you need not be available, please contact the City through the website or email for more details. 

Board, Commission, and Committee meetings will continue to be held via Zoom. Links to meetings will be posted at at least one week before meetings, work sessions, and other community forums. These meeting announcements and links will also be posted in the enews. Access to meetings is available by phone, computer, or smart device.  

Your cooperation and patience are very much appreciated while we take these measures to protect you and our employees as this pandemic continues. Updates will be communicated through enews (subscribe at, social media, and on the City’s website.
