I have read the guidelines on this page and want to Request an online Bulky Waste Pick Up.

The Department will collect White Goods, Bulky Waste and Yard Waste from residential units on a call for service basis for no additional charge based on the policy outlined above. Contact the Baldwin County Solid Waste Department at 251.972.6878 to set up a date for pick up. Each residential unit may opt to bring quarterly approved bulky and yard waste to Magnolia Landfill, Bay Minette Transfer Station, or MacBride Landfill for disposal at no charge based on the policy outlined above. This service is provided for waste generated from the residential use of the property and does not include waste generated by home businesses. The residential customers account must be current to receive these services at no charge. If the residential customer is not current, they can still bring the items to the landfill and pay the normal scale fees to dispose of the item(s).

Should a residential unit in good standing choose to utilize the Baldwin County Solid Waste Department to pick up and dispose of additional approved materials, a service fee of $250.00 plus $5.00 per cubic yard based on 5 cubic yard increments with a minimum of 5 cubic yards and a maximum of 20 cubic yards will be charged to the requesting residential unit. Payment of setup fee ($275.00) must be made to the Department before service is rendered. Any requests over 20 cubic yards must pay an additional set up fee in advance.
