Garbage/Leaf Collection

The City of Vestavia Hills provides curbside garbage and trash collection services for its residents.  Since April 2014, we have a new way of doing business for resident requests.  If you have a garbage or trash related request, we encourage you to submit it through the Vestavia Hills Action Center (, also available as a mobile app on iTunes and the Google Play store).  You are also welcome to contact our Public Services Department at 978-0150 or


In addition to other request types (e.g. potholes, right-of-way maintenance, etc.), these are the garbage and trash related requests you can make through the Action Center:

  • Additional or replacement garbage or recycling cart (this is also how you set up new service)
  • Missed garbage
  • Missed bulk trash (e.g. a couch or carpet)
  • Missed yard debris
  • Missed recycling
  • Trash and debris new and special pick-up
  • Back-door service
  • Garbage complaints (all garbage/trash/recycling complaints)


Please contact the City (either through the Action Center or by calling) to make your requests and complaints.  This ensures you receive the right information and helps us to hold the waste contractor accountable.
