Garbage & Recycling




We are already receiving calls about a Christmas Tree drop off site for the Holidays.   There will be a designated drop off site on Municipal Lane, across from the Lake house.  Signs will be posted on Municipal Lane after Christmas.  You may take your tree and drop it off at this location or leave it out by your garbage for pick up by Santek after the Holidays.

If you have requested a swap from the large recycle cart to the smaller 32 gallon cart, please be patient with us as those swaps are being made.  You may contact Santek at 205-631-1313 or Hoover Public Works at 205-444-7543 to ensure that you are on the swap list. Swaps are being made daily until they are completed.  We will not be able to give you an exact date of swap, but the large recycle carts must be out and on the curb and visible for the swap to be made.  

Should you receive a letter from your neighborhood HOA in regards to having carts on the curb, please notify Hoover Public Works and we will call your HOA. 

If you are a business owner in Hoover and have had a business account with Republic Services, utilizing the 96 gallon garbage cartsyou should contact Republic Services (205-929-5646) about your current status with them.  They may no longer provide services unless you can utilize a larger container or dumpster.  If this is the case, businesses may contact a vendor of their choice to establish new commercial or business services.
