Cobb Storm Debris Removal Policy: Cobb County crews cannot remove tree or landscaping debris that occurred on private property. The removal of this debris is the responsibility of the property owner.

Cobb County DOT crews are still working to clear roadways and right of way of debris mostly caused by falling trees during the recent snow storm. Crews will only clear the debris affecting county roads or property. Property owners are asked to call their private disposal company or tree service to have debris removed if necessary.

Be Prepared for Winter Weather

Adopt-A-Cemetery Program

In addition to supporting the creation of a new state law and encouraging enforcement of the local ordinance, the Cemetery Preservation Commission also protects and preserves cemeteries through the Adopt-A-Cemetery Program.

This program is designed to preserve and protect our heritage for future generations. Local organizations, church groups, scouts, and individuals are encouraged to adopt a cemetery in their community. The adopting group upholds a monthly schedule of maintenance to preserve the dignity of the cemetery. Many of these cemeteries have suffered abandonment and neglect primarily because families have died out or moved away. As a result, the younger generation has limited or no knowledge of the location of the old family/community burial ground.
