For the City of Opelika to pick up appliances, the appliance must have a “permit sticker” showing – otherwise, City crews will not pick it up! You can purchase appliance permit stickers at one of two places: the Revenue Department, located on the first floor of City Hall, or at the Building Inspection offices, located at the Public Works facilities on 700 Fox Trail. Stickers for non-hazardous appliances are $5 each. Stickers for hazardous appliances (anything with Freon in it) are $15 each. Pick-up is on Friday mornings only. Applicances may be brought to one of our recycling centers at no charge.
If you are on the City’s power (Opelika Power Services), a work order for the can is automatically generated for you when you sign up for power services. If you have Alabama Power or TREC power, then you must go to the Opelika Power Services Customer Service Center, located at 600 Fox Run Parkway, and request garbage collection.
