Residential Garbage Pickup

Effective August 2, 2021, the City of Leeds residential garbage/waste management services are managed by Ecosouth rather than Advanced Disposal/Waste Management.  New containers have been delivered by Ecosouth to all residential customers as of Tuesday, August 3, 2021 and their trash pickup services began Monday, August 2.

Residential Customers

If you are a residential customer living in the city limits of Leeds and have not received a new container, Ecosouth may not know who you are so it is VERY IMPORTANT that you call Ecosouth to let them know that you have not received your container and set up your service.

Ecosouth is doing their best to keep your garbage service on the same day that you have had in the past, but your day is subject to change.  During the transition period (for a couple of weeks or so), Ecosouth will pick up your trash even if it is in the old container or if you do not have any container, just put your bagged trash on the street.  Again, if you do not have a new container by now, please call Ecosouth to get your new container delivered.  (Please note:  If you have already called Ecosouth, there is no need to make multiple calls.  You should receive your container soon.)

Business Customers

If you are a business customer, you will need to call Ecosouth and set up new service in order for Ecosouth to service your account.

Fall Bagged Leaf Collection

Beginning November 1, the City of Leeds will begin its annual fall collection of BAGGED LEAVES.

This service is available from November 1 through March 1.  As in our neighboring cities, we will no longer offer loose leaf collection. The fact that our equipment has reached an end to its useful life and with the escalating cost of labor required to support this service makes loose leaf collection an unsustainable service. Additionally, new environmental regulations from EPA and AEM related to water quality are yet another reason as to why we must end loose leaf collection.

The City provides bagged leaf pickup service to its citizens to prevent flooding, protect water quality, and to keep our neighborhood roads safe for motorist and pedestrians.

Please do not place your bagged leaves into the street or gutter!

Bagged leaves should be placed behind the curb (not in the street) no latter than 6AM on the day your scheduled pick up.

Any questions, please call 205-699-0910

Leeds Trash and Limb Pickup Service

The City of Leeds provides trash and limb pickup for which a small fee is charged.  This service is intended for removal of limbs, not trees and for individual household items, not whole houses of furniture, appliances, etc.

If you had a contractor cut a large tree, have a large amount of construction material, clean up an entire lot, etc., you are responsible for having a dumpster, take that material to the dump yourself or have your contractor remove the material.

The City will liberally interpret rules and help wherever possible, but your help is needed for us to provide this service to everyone on an equitable basis.  Material from commercial contractors and piles obviously outside the intended scope of service will be left unloaded.

If you are in doubt as to what is acceptable size load to put on street for pickup, please see diagram below that could help you:
