The City of Bay Minette will see a change in the frequency of its residential garbage service beginning Jan. 7, 2019. The Public Works Department will switch to once a week pick-up for Household Garbage.

To view a detailed map of the new route schedule, click here.

The new weekly schedule will follow this general route for HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE:

Monday: West side of Hand Avenue, north of 9th Street to Alabama 59, 9th Street and south of 9th Street to Railroad Street.

Tuesday: East side of Hand Avenue, north side of 12th Street, Alabama 287, Scarlet Hills and lakeside, 12th to 1st Street, Bonnie Brae, south side of 12th Street.

Garbage collection crews operate Monday through Friday with the exception of holidays. Garbage should be curbside by 7 a.m. on your day of service. Time of pick-up can vary slightly and pick-up can only be assured by placing garbage curbside before the route begins. 

To report a missed pick-up or for more information on the services provided, call the Public Works Department at 580-1848.

The City of Bay Minette's Public Works Department also oversees the collection of yard debris and bulky waste.

YARD DEBRIS - Pick-up of yard waste will follow the same schedule as residential garbage pick-up. Yard debris includes materials resulting from landscape maintenance, including grass clippings, leaves, pine straw, twigs, branches, etc. These are considered natural items and are placed in a separate landfill pit for decomposition.

BULKY WASTE - Bulky Waste items will be picked up on Wednesdays. Bulky Waste includes items such as furniture, appliances, mattresses, carpets, etc. These should be placed curbside, separated from yard debris and household garbage. Construction and demolition waste are not eligible for this service.

RECYCLING - The City of Bay Minette does not have a curbside recycling program at this time. The Baldwin County Solid Waste Department has placed recycling containers at various locations in north Baldwin County. Cardboard, aluminum and plastic can be placed in these containers located at Bay Minette City Hall, Commission Administration Building on W. 3rd Street, Stockton Post Office, Bicentennial Park on Ala. 225, Stapleton Volunteer Fire Department on Ala. 59, and the Bay Minette Transfer Station on Nicholsville Road.

When preparing garbage, waste and debris for collection, please remember:

*All household garbage should be bagged, enclosed in a maximum 32-gallon lidded container and placed curbside by 7 a.m. on the day of scheduled service.

*Bulky Waste, Household Garbage and Yard Debris should be placed separately for pick-up.

*Do not place any waste, garbage or debris in ditches or on sidewalks. This can cause clogged drains and flooding issues.

*Tires, paint and. other hazardous materials are not eligible for pick-up. Residents should take these items directly to the Baldwin County Transfer Station on Nicholsville Road.

*Any construction and contractor debris, including tree removal, should be removed by the contractor or a fee will be assessed at $75 per load by the City of Bay Minette.

 

    Bay Minette in Bloom

The “Bay Minette in Bloom” campaign began in 2013 as a way to bring beautiful hanging baskets to downtown Bay Minette. The project has continued to blossom under the guidance of the North Baldwin Chamber Foundation.

The Foundation works with the City of Bay Minette, Bay Minette Beautification Committee and other community partners to make it happen. Foundation Director Ashley Jones Davis said the project originated from discussions on beautification projects for the area.

The Chamber Foundation continues to raise funds to install and maintain the Bay Minette in Bloom hanging baskets.  For a donation of $250, individuals or businesses can sponsor a basket display which consists of one pole with two hanging baskets.

Sponsorships can be made in memory or honor of someone and a sign will be hung at a basket location upon request of the donor. Sponsorships are then renewable each year for $150 to help with the upkeep of the basket.

Since its inception the “Bay Minette in Bloom” project has raised more than $13,000 to install and maintain the baskets and flowers. For more information about making a donation toward the project or becoming a sponsor, contact the North Baldwin Chamber Foundation at 251-937-5665 or visit its website.
