Do You Need a Dumpster Permit in Birmingham?
Local regulations require the installation of waste collecting equipment for households and commercial enterprises. For example, to be eligible for curbside pick-ups households must use garbage bins with a 20-32 gallon capacity. Plastic bins are preferred over metal. Also, specific items can be placed in the bin for collection or recycling.
Birmingham may also require residents and business owners to obtain dumpster bin permits so that they can place their bins on the curb for easier collection – permits are available at the city office.
Aside from a Birmingham dumpster permit, the city also charges a fee for solid waste and asbestos removal. Acceptable waste materials that can be collected during scheduled collection days include household plastics from numbers 1 to 7, aluminum and steel cans, paper products and the like.
Where Can You Take Your Recycling in Birmingham?

There are fixed schedules for curbside collection of recyclable items which is the same as regular solid waste collection schedules. Residents are encouraged to separate recyclables from the rest of the household waste for easier collection. The items are delivered to the Alabama Environmental Council’s Recycling Center which receives recyclables, including glass. They are also welcome to leave recyclables on the collection trucks at any of the district offices and other commercial recycling centers in Birmingham.
Birmingham also has a year-round and free bulky item pickup program. Items that can be collected include old mattresses, furniture, appliances, doors and windows, old carpeting and other large items that are not picked up through regular collection.
For household and hazardous waste disposals, drop offs can be done free at the SOCRRA from Monday to Friday. Electronic wastes and styrofoam waste can also be disposed in the same location.
