Residents are provided with a special 96-gallon roll-out cart. Collection trucks are equipped with a lifting mechanism on the side that will lift and empty the cart and will return the cart to the ground. The process takes about ten seconds and can be performed without the driver leaving the truck. For a successful pickup to occur, the cart must be placed curbside according to directions.
If you are new to the City of Hartselle, please call Public Works to set up an account at 256-773-2643.
Everyone is issued one 96-gallon cart. One cart holds in excess of three average 30-gallon bags and will be sufficient for most household garbage. You can request up to 2 additional carts at a cost of $3 per month for each additional cart.
Because this is an automated garbage collection system, drivers cannot collect bagged or any overflow garbage. Your best defense against overflow garbage is "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle."
You may also carry excess garbage to the landfill dumpsters.
Please call Public Works at 256-773-2643 or refer to the trash collection zone map.
Carts belong to the City of Hartselle Public Works Department and are under the care of each customer. If you the customer damages the cart then you will be responsible to replace it. However, should Public Works damage a cart, it will replace the cart at no charge to the customer.
