RESIDENTIAL VEGETATION, BULK ITEMS / WHITE GOODS COLLECTION

RESIDENTIAL VEGETATION and BULK ITEM / WHITE GOODS SERVICES are provided by the Public Works Department on a weekly basis. It is our goal to provide each residence with a minimum of one pick up per week as needed. 

  • Vegetative debris includes limbs, clippings, leaves, shrubs, trees and other landscaping items.
  • Bulk Items / White Goods includes appliances, furniture, and lawn maintenance equipment, etc. 

It is important that residents sort and provide separation of each type of pile for roadside collection due to different trucks disposing of these items in different locations. Grass clippings and leaves are to be piled together as they are collected with a vacuum.  All other are collected with a knuckle-boom grapple. 

Roadside collection is for residential customers only. City does not collect commercial items or debris. 

For additional information, questions or concerns on relating to vegetation and/or bulk pickup services, contact Public Works Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m. at 251-974-1023.

Please Note: Residents can no longer drop off household debris at the Public Works facility, which is now on Roscoe Road. The old location on William Silvers Parkway is now closed and owned by Baldwin County Public Schools. Residents can either put debris out for pick up, per the schedule below, or take it to the Magnolia Landfill in Summerdale. Residents can still drop off used tires, paint and motor oil at the new facility.
