Request for pickup of household rubbish items.
The first Monday of each month has 100 slots for pickup service of Rubbish and Household items for curbside pickup. Signup opens two weeks before each Monday, and locks the Friday before unless the 100 slots have been filled. If there is a holiday on the Monday, the slot will be moved to the second Monday of that month. There are 14 rubbish pickup days per year - One scheduled each month and two days which will coincide with the "Free Day" at the Shelby Landfill. (These dates will be added as they are released)
Items can be set out at the curb no more than 48 hours before the scheduled pickup date. Only houses scheduled for pickup will be serviced.
We do require a $5 reservation fee to be collected at the conclusion of this signup process. If you do not have access to a computer or internet, you may come to City Hall to sign up and pay the $5 reservation fee in person. Only residences which are being billed by the City of Alabaster for garbage services are eligible for this signup service - we will not complete your pickup if you are not billed for the Garbage Service on your Alabaster Water Billing.
