What is Automated Garbage Collection?

Residents are provided with a special 96-gallon roll-out cart. Collection trucks are equipped with a lifting mechanism on the side that will lift and empty the cart and will return the cart to the ground. The process takes about ten seconds and can be performed without the driver leaving the truck. For a successful pickup to occur, the cart must be placed curbside according to directions.

If you are new to the City of Hartselle, please call Public Works to set up an account at 256-773-2643.
