We are in the process of relocating to the Dahlonega/ Dawsonville area and have noticed a lot of trash alongside roads, including SR 400. Does anyone know if this gets cleaned up?

It does get cleaned up, but the growth in the 400 corridor has been so rapid that the counties can’t always keep up with maintenance as well as they used to.

If you are talking about roadways like Georgia State Route 400 (Georgia 400), then you are talking about a roadway that (like other numbered roadways like US-19, GA-60, GA-9, GA-53, etc.) is under the purview of the Georgia Department of Transportation (or GDOT).

Which, GDOT is an agency that perennially has significant issues (limited funding, limited manpower, political interference, constant reorganization, public relations crises, etc.) that can and does at times hamper its ability to perform some of its most basic duties like trash pickup and routine road maintenance.

The only thing that one can do if they are concerned about the appearance of the roads is to register a complaint or concern with GDOT's customer service line. Here is a link to a page on the GDOT website with that contact information:

Georgia Department of Transportation - Contact Us

Keep in mind that GDOT is an agency that often seems to be under some form of stress (from politicians, the public, the media, financial, etc.), so do not be surprised if it takes some time to address your particular concern.
