TO THE CITIZENS OF THE CITY OF DADEVILLE
Safety is a top priority for Waste Management and is a shared responsibility that starts right at your waste container. A properly filled, maintained and serviced container is crucial in keeping our customers and our employees free from harm. To that end, we would like to share with you some best practices in proper waste disposal to help you maintain a waste area that is functional and safe for both you and our drivers.
These tips provide a few helpful suggestions on proper waste disposal such as: reducing container odor, keeping your waste area clean, and disposing of bulky items.
Loading Container: When loading your container, please ensure that your container lid can fully close.
Reduce Odor: All trash must be placed in a trash can liners (trash bag). Due to the potential exposure of Hazardous materials. To help reduce odor around your waste area, remember to tightly bag your trash before placing it in your container. This will help to reduce bacteria build up and odor caused by spilled garbage.
On Wednesday, the City of Dadeville Street Department will pick up only household items that are limited to big items that are not capable of being put in your garbage can or loaded into a vehicle and taken to the city dump. The city cannot accept refrigerators, air conditioners, or any other items that may have Freon in it, car or tractor batteries, tires or roof shingles. This service is to be used for the removal of big items such as beds, couches, tables, etc. Anything else will be left on the ground, and you will be responsible for clean up or fined for littering in municipal court. Materials that the city does pick up, with the exception of tires and items with Freon in them, may be hauled to the city dump on Young’s Ferry road for a $10.00 dump fee, to be paid at city hall.
Also, depending upon your residential address, residential trash pick-up will either be Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday each week by Waste Management. If your trash can is damaged, or your trash is missed from pick-up, please call City Hall promptly.
In addition to household garbage, on Friday, the city will pick up limbs and other vegetative matter from along the city right-of-ways. All limbs must be cut in five (5) to ten (10) foot sections or smaller and placed perpendicular with the road. No piece of matter weighing over one-hundred (100) pounds will be allowed in the piles. All piles must be placed where the truck can reach them without interference of phone, cable or power lines and poles, and must be placed a safe distance from all buildings and mail boxes. Piles are not to be mixed with household items, only vegetative matter or you will be required to separate the pile before the city will pick it up. LEAVES MUST BE BAGGED or they will not be picked up. NO LEAVES ARE TO BE RAKED INTO THE DRAINAGES ALONG THE CITY RIGHT-OF-WAY, WHICH STOPS THE FLOW OF RAIN WATER.
This schedule is being done in order to save the city time and money from picking up five (5) days a week, and allow city employees more time to work on other matters within the city. In the event of rain on any of these days, the city will pick up the items the next day that is available.
