Trash & Yard Waste Services

Pick Up Schedule

Every attempt is made to collect trash and yard waste on the same day as your garbage. However, during the Spring and later Fall, when leaves are falling and the holiday trash volumes are heavy, we may pick up later in the week than your normal day.

Another instance when we may run later than normal is when we have a major weather event. Sometimes these major weather events may cause delays for several weeks before we can get back on schedule. 

Thanks for your patience and understanding. If you have questions, call 334-705-5480.
