In addition, the Spalding County Public Works Department is responsible for the operations of the collection centers. The collection centers are open four days a week from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Centers are closed on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. There are five Collection Centers in Spalding County:
Akin Collection Center 841 South McDonough Road Griffin, Georgia
Blalock Collection Center 5756 Newnan Road Griffin, Georgia
Woodroof Collection Center 4245 Old Atlanta Road Griffin, GA
Cabin Collection Center 3865 Jackson Road Griffin, Georgia
Carver Collection Center 610 Carver Road Griffin, Georgia
The Collection Centers were created through a SPLOST project, voted on by Spalding County Citizens. The purpose of the Collection Centers, as presented to the voters at the time of the SPLOST, was to handle household garbage only. Over the years, additional services have been added to accommodate other items being accepted at the Collection Centers. These services are now being abused and represent a significant expense to the Spalding County Taxpayers.
The Spalding County Board of Commissioners voted to implement changes which will return the Collection Centers to the use for which they were originally designed and that were approved by the citizens of Spalding County.
