Solid Waste FAQ's

Does the $13.50 charge apply even if I choose not to have curbside service?
Yes. This cost provides collection and disposal service whether provided through curbside collection or use of the convenience centers or use of both. If you wish to waive the use of a cart, call 478-445-4791. Please leave your name, contact numbers, street address and reason for calling.
How often will carts be picked up?
Carts will be picked up once per week. You will be assigned a cart and told the day of the week for pickup. Pickup will be between 6:00 AM and 6:00 PM. You may place your cart at curbside beginning at 5:00 PM of the day prior to your pickup day, and you must remove your cart from the curbside before 8:00 AM of the day following pickup.
Are there any provisions for pickup if no one in the household is physically able to roll the cart to the curb?
Yes. If no one in the household is physically able to roll the cart to curbside, then the County will arrange for the cart to be picked up at your back or side door. The County will require appropriate verification of this need.
How will the county prevent the use of the convenience centers by unauthorized persons?
Each household and each commercial hand-load unit paying the assessment will receive cards (two per household) that must be presented to obtain access to, and use of, the convenience centers. These cards must be presented to the attendant before you will be allowed to dispose of any type of waste at the convenience centers. If you are a tenant, please contact your landlord. The cards for access to the centers for the property you are renting may have been mailed to your landlord. Disposal of C&D waste or waste from any location other than the personal residence of the person disposing of the waste is in violation of current regulations and will continue to be a violation.
What if I am only a part-time resident or my property in Baldwin County is used only as a vacation or weekend home?
You will be subject to the assessment and may choose to have curbside service or to only make use of the convenience centers for your waste. If you have a principle residence in Baldwin County that is subject to the assessment but also have an additional home such as a lake home, the primary residence will be eligible for curbside service and will be subject to the full assessment. No charge will be made for use of convenience center services for the second home. Call 478-445-4791 and make us aware of your situation.
