Garbage & Recycling

Beginning October 1st and ending on October 31st, Republic Services will collect one empty trash cart and one empty recycle cart per household.   Place your old cart on the curb on Oct 1st.
Helpful hints:
Place the old carts on the curb and lay them on their sides so the new vendor will not check it for garbage.   Place the small recycle cart inside the large garbage cart, if they are empty to save space.  Thank you for your patience.  


Waste Services of Alabama (Santek) personnel will begin delivering your new carts September 14th. You will receive a gray cart for household trash and a blue cart for recyclables.  Both carts will be 96 gallon carts.  We have approximately 25,000 residents in Hoover who will receive new carts by the end of the month.  Please be patient with us during this transition period.  


Starting October 1st, our outgoing vendor - Republic Services, will collect one empty trash cart and one empty recycle cart per household. You may leave your old carts on the curb for pick-up on October 1st. Should you have questions concerning smaller recycle carts, please call Waste Services of Alabama (Santek) after October 1st at        205-631-1313 and they will exchange your large recycle cart for a smaller one upon request.   You may also contact the City of Hoover Public Works Department with questions at 205-444-7543.   

Although Santek will not officially begin servicing Hoover until October 1st, we have updated our website to reflect their contact information.  Please continue to contact Republic Services (205-929-5646) for garbage issues until October 1st. 

Thank you for your patience.
