Merry Christmas & Best Wishes! As a reminder, the City of Daphne administration & operations will be CLOSED December 24 & 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday. Garbage & Recycling make-up day will be Thursday, December 26. (There is NO makeup day for Trash/Yard Debris.)
All household garbage must be bagged and placed in a City of Daphne issued garbage cart with a tight fitting lid suitable to protect the contents from insects, animals and water. The container should not be more than 96 gallons or less than 64 gallons, unless otherwise approved. Do not use red garbage bags (red is the universal color for medical waste, and medical waste is not collected by the City of Daphne).

Acceptable Yard Debris Waste
All leaves, pine straw, grass clippings, and pine cones are suitable for collection by the City of Daphne, but must be bagged. Do not place these items in garbage cans, boxes, piles, or wheelbarrows, as they will not be collected.
Please note that tree limbs and clippings should not be more than 5 feet in length and 8 inches in diameter. The City does not pick up trees that have been cut by contractors or individuals paid to remove trees. It is the property owner's responsibility to have these trees removed.
Yard Debris Pick Up Schedule
