     Courtesy letters will no longer be mailed to property owners and tenants for piles put out for pick up by City of Bainbridge Sanitation Department. Once a pile is reported it will be put on the list for removal and scheduled to be removed no more than one week after reported. Sanitation Department drivers and Marshal’s office employees will be reporting piles when seen.

     Any piles that are mixed with yard debris will be charged an additional $50.00 separation service charge if the Sanitation Department is sent to remove pile.
