Bulk Trash Schedule for August 2022

 

August 2022 Bulk Trash Calendar 

 

August 2022 Bulk Trash Schedule by Neighborhood 

July 29, 2022 Update

Our Department of Public Works has released the bulk trash schedule for August 2022. Please check the schedule and only put out bulk trash the day before your scheduled pick-up date. All bulk trash should be on the curb no later than 6 a.m. on the assigned collection day.

To make it easier for residents to find their neighborhood, we have created a document that lists neighborhoods in alphabetical order. That version may be found here. For residents used to searching the pick-up schedule for their area by the date on the calendar, we have that option, too.  That version may be found here.

Residents with complaints about missed bulk trash should call 311 or 205-254-6314. Operators are available Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The City of Birmingham will close early at 12 p.m. on July 29, 2022, which means the 311 call center will also close at that time.

On another note, we continue to keep residents updated on which areas crews have completed.

Crews are working in the following communities on July 29, 2022: South Woodlawn, Oak Ridge Park #1, Highland Park, Overton, South Pratt, Kingston and Collegeville.

The following communities were completed on July 28, 2022:  Inglenook, Tuxedo, Ensley #2, Crestwood South and Gate City.

July 19-20, 2022 Update 

Because crews are continuing to deal with staffing and equipment issues, they are unable to provide advance bulk trash pick-up dates for the rest of July. However, they have provided a list of the neighborhoods they have left to collect in July 2022. The neighborhoods are numbered based on when public works will address them and not numbered based on a date. They are also addressing areas, per day, based on the four quadrants of the city.

For example, for July 20, they are addressing the first 5 listed neighborhoods in the North Birmingham district.
Daily updates have resumed being posted to www.birminghamal.gov/bulktrash. DPW is working to have a schedule for August 2022. Please stay tuned for details on the August schedule.

One other note is that some reports may show repetition in that it may show that crews finished a neighborhood on a certain day and then the next day’s report shows that the same neighborhood was completed. That sometimes occurs because there may be pockets of a neighborhood that did not get finished and crews may have gone back to collect missed piles.

Bulk trash crews started work in the following neighborhoods on July 19: Bush Hills, Enon Ridge, Spring Lake, Roosevelt City, Oak Ridge, North Titusville, Glen Iris and Five Points South.
