Bulk Trash Pickup
Dear Resident/Property Owner:
This letter is to inform you concerning procedures and responsibility for private waste, including yard waste, bulky waste and white goods. The town has an agreement with Baldwin County Solid Waste to collect private waste on an individual account basis. There is no other means of waste collection available to the town’s residents and property owners.
It is the responsibility of each resident and/or property owner to dispose of private waste. Most residents/property owners have an account with Baldwin County Solid Waste and are eligible for “yard waste, bulky waste and white goods” pickup.
Following are the Baldwin County Regulations:
Bulky Waste – furniture, appliances, mattresses, auto tires and carpet.
Construction and demolition debris will not be picked up.
White Goods – refrigerators, ranges, water heaters, air conditioners and other large appliances.
Swing sets, fence wire, etc. do not qualify as household items and are not picked up.
Yard Waste- Material resulting from landscape maintenance, including but not limited to grass clippings, leaves, twigs, etc.

The Solid Waste Department will collect White Goods, Bulky Waste and Yard Waste from residential customers on a call for service basis. This service is provided for those items listed above that are generated from residential use of the property but does not include items generated from a business.
Your residential garbage account must be current to take advantage of these services at no charge. If your account is past due or you have no account then you may still dispose of these items by bringing them to the landfill and paying the normal scale fees.
