ALABASTER – Alabaster crews are in the process of distributing tens of thousands of residential garbage and recycling bins to the city’s residents, and have set the pickup schedule the city will use once Alabaster’s garbage service begins in January, according to the city.
In July, the Alabaster City Council agreed to purchase a little more than 23,000 residential garbage and recycling carts for about $1.3 million off the National Joint Power Alliance competitive bid list.
City crews began delivering the new carts on Dec. 4, and will do so until Dec. 22. The new city of Alabaster trash carts are all-blue, while the recycling carts are blue with a green lid.
Because the city’s current trash service provider, Advanced Disposal, will continue to service the city for the rest of this year, Alabaster leaders are asking residents to not use the new carts until Jan. 2, 2018.
Advanced Disposal will pick up their carts from city residences on the last service week in December on the residence’s usual pickup date.
Beginning on Jan. 2, only official Alabaster trash and recycling carts will be serviced. Because Jan. 1 is a holiday, the first week of Alabaster’s trash service will run a day behind normal schedule.
When the city service begins, monthly residential garbage collection rates will not change from their current number of $15.27. Commercial and non-residential customers will pay $30.54 per month.
The city garbage service will not serve Alabaster’s seven mobile home parks, the City Council recently announced.
