Do garbage trucks awaken you all hours of the night and predawn hours? I am awaken every Saturday morning between 7:00 and 7:15 while the Mayfair Tower Condominium has their garbage removed. This entails 10 minutes of a blaring reverse siren in addition to the thunderous boom of each dumpster being lifted and banging into the garbage truck. The Atlanta Noise Ordinance indicates: It is unlawful, and a violation of this Code, for any person to cause, allow, or permit any of the following acts unless a temporary variance has been obtained: Compacting or collecting of refuse by persons engaged in the business of scavenging or garbage collection, whether private or municipal, during nighttime hours or before 9:00 am on a weekend day or legal holiday;
The Mayfair Tower Property Manager has refused to comply with the ordinance and has even indicated that any fines would just be passed onto the garbage service. Calls to the police while the illegal operation is underway have been ignored. If you observe garbage removal before 9:00a.m. on the weekend CALL MIDTOWN BLUE 404-817-0500 AND DEMAND THAT A CITATION BE ISSUED AND THE ORDINACE BE ENFORCED.
