About Us

Garbage and trash collection for the City of Prattville is managed by the Sanitation Division. The department collects for the entire city and annexed areas. The solid waste (garbage) routes require five packer trucks, with three employees per truck. We collect an average of 225-250 tons of waste per week and haul it to the RePower South which is operated by Repower South Montgomeryl. Our inert (trash) collection routes require five trash trucks with boom loaders, with two employees per truck. We collect an average of 1000-1050 yards of trash each week and we are able to carry this to the city landfill, which is also operated by JB Waste.
