RESIDENTIAL GARBAGE COLLECTION
GARBAGE PICKUP IS TWICE WEEKLY ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS.
The residential garbage charge is currently $16.25 per month and is billed by the Finance Department on the same bill as the sewer charge. Contact the Finance Department at 251-981-6096 to establish new service or to report issues relative to your garbage and recycle service.
RESIDENTIAL RECYCLE COLLECTION
RECYCLE PICKUP IS DIVIDED INTO 2 ZONES. EACH ZONE RECEIVES PICKUP EVERY OTHER WEEK ON WEDNESDAY.
Please refer to the ZONE MAP for recycling pick-up zones and the calendar on this page for the weekly schedule for trash or recycling pick-up dates.
When referring to the Zone Map, Zone 1 = Gray and Zone 2 = Blue.
RESIDENTIAL VEGETATION, C&D, WHITE GOODS COLLECTION
RESIDENTIAL VEGETATION and C&D (Construction and Demolition Materials) 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.
- C&D includes lumber, plywood, roofing, pilings, concrete.
- 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 C&D services, contact Public Works Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m. at 251-974-1023.
