A cubic yard means a volume the same as a cube that is one yard on each edge. In other words, it is 3 feet wide by 3 feet deep by 3 feet high. Some common approximations of cubic yard measurements:
One standard stove = 1 cubic yard
Two standard refrigerators = 4 cubic yards
The bed of a regular size pick-up truck filled to the top of the cab = 4.5 cubic yards
Do not place items under power lines or within four (4) feet of any other object (mailboxes, fire hydrants, fences, trees etc.). Items/Material must be placed neatly in separate piles on the right of way as different trucks may be utilized in the pickup process.
Bundled Waste and Bulky Waste
Cardboard material, which does not fit into a garbage can, shall be bundled. Bundles shall be bound securely together so as to avoid disintegration or spillage when lifted or moved. Bundles shall not exceed two (2) feet by two (2) feet by four (4) feet in size and fifty (50) pounds in weight. The Department strongly encourages that cardboard material be taken, by the resident, to the nearest recycle facility. Bundled cardboard that cannot be transported to a recycle facility or exceeds the above size and/or weight restrictions should be scheduled as a Bulky Pickup.
I have read the guidelines on this page and want to request an online Bulky Waste Pick Up. - Pickups are for NON storm related debris.
The Department will collect White Goods, Bulky Waste, Light Construction and/or Yard Waste from residential units on a call for service basis for no additional charge based on the policy outlined above. Contact the Department’s dispatcher at (251) 972-6878 to set up a date for pickup. Each residential unit may opt to bring monthly approved bulky waste, white goods, light construction 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 and home business use of the property on curbside pickup. The customer’s residential 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).
When the pickup request exceeds the free service level the customer will receive a courtesy call and/or notice to contact Solid Waste for alternative disposal options.
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 $100.00 for a half truck load or $200.00 for a full truck load will be charged to the requesting residential unit. Payment for additional services must be made to the Department before service is rendered.
