Lauderdale County Commission Solid Waste Department


Lauderdale County Solid Waste Department provides residential garbage collection for all of Lauderdale County excluding Florence City Limits and Lexington City Limits.  Residential garbage collection is $14.00 per month for 1 day per week collection in carts provided by the county.

Bagged household garbage only should be placed in garbage containers.  The garbage containers should not be overloaded and do not put in hot ash, liquids, hazardous materials, bio-hazards, cardboard, any type of yard waste, batteries or any type of construction material including paint cans containing wet paint.  If there are any questions regarding what items should be placed in a household collection container, please call the Lauderdale County Solid Waste office at (256) 760-5878.

The county operates its own landfill located at 5700 Highway 157 N (Cloverdale Road) North of Florence @ Underwood. This C & D landfill is permitted to accept building type debris, trees and limbs, paper, tires, appliances (that have not had Freon in them) and other similar type waste.  We also accept household garbage at our transfer station located inside our landfill.  Lauderdale County residents may bring items for disposal by presenting a current utility bill along with ID as proof of residence.  Disposal for residents is free-of-charge.
