County Asks Citizens to Help Keep Our Roadsides Clean


The County Commission wants to remind our citizens that the dumping of trash on the roadsides is illegal and violators will be prosecuted.  Citizens who are currently paying for residential curbside collection services also have the ability to use the City/ County Collection Facility located at 110 Red Eagle Drive in Wetumpka to dispose of items too large to fit in their curbside container.  Below are the list of rules for the collection facility.

These rules are in place in order for residents (who are currently paying residential curbside customers) to retain access to this free service.  Individuals not adhering to these rules will be subject to prosecution.

  1. All citizens utilizing the facility should practice CDC recommended practices related to COVID-19 or may be asked to exit the facility;
  2. The collection facility is not intended for contractors as the facility is designed for residents to dispose of items larger in size or quantity than their normal residential containers can accommodate. All demolition materials and woody debris must not be longer than four feet long;
  3. The site is not to be used for household garbage. Anyone disposing of household garbage at this facility will be prosecuted for illegal dumping;
  4. Items that will not be accepted include appliances, batteries, paints or thinners, oils and gases;
  5. Any items that are not considered trash (e.g. clothing, unwanted/ gently used items, and gently used furniture) should be donated to a local donation center. Local donation centers in this area are the Elmore County Humane Shelter Thrift Store, the Adullam House Thrift Store, and Goodwill;
  6. Separate areas for metals, mattresses, tires and woody debris/ yard waste as well as construction type materials (lumber, etc) are designated by signage. Please keep in mind these type items should be less than four feet in length;
  7. Please pay attention to the signage at the facility. Signs are placed to show where specific items are to be disposed.
