SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) -The City of Savannah has expanded the number of collection crews to expedite the yard waste pickup process.

The City instituted a one-time yard waste collection across the city using a partnership with a private sector company. This is normally activated only after major storms. The City says the amount of yard waste and other debris greatly exceeded expectations, leading to longer pickup times.

  • Eastside
  • Dixon Park
