Schedule for Residential Collection


Enter your address into My Huntsville Services to find your garbage collection day.


There will be no residential garbage, recycling or yard waste collection within the Huntsville City limits on the holidays listed below. Collection through the week will be delayed by one day beginning with the regular Monday pickups occurring on Tuesday.

The general rule of thumb is, if your garbage collection date falls on a holiday, place your can by the curb the evening before the next business day.

Please check the City’s sanitation calendar for exact dates and schedules.
