PW Recycling Notice v2

Recycling Notice

The City of Daphne Solid Waste Department is currently experiencing mechanical issues with both of its recycling trucks. We are currently running routes with a back-up automated-arm garbage truck and a pick-up truck, however please be assured that all materials left curbside are being taken directly to our recycling center.

There are ways you can assist until these trucks are back on their routes:

  • If your cart is not full and you are able to wait until your next scheduled pick-up day, please consider this option
  • Items can also be dropped off at our recycling center located at 26435 Public Works Road

If you have any further questions, please contact us at 251-620-2100 or email the Public Works Director at

Recycle Daphne is a program dedicated to the recycling efforts within the City of Daphne. Did you know that over 3,200 tons of materials were recycled or composted through Recycle Daphne!’s efforts last year? By keeping these materials out of a landfill, we decreased carbon dioxide & methane emissions & saved enough energy to power 7,000 Daphne homes for 36 days!

Please call Public Works at 251-620-2100 if you have specific questions about your curbside service, click here to view an interactive route map, or to view the current Garbage & Recycling Holiday Schedule, click here.
