2023 March Sanitary Service Changes

In October 2022, our residential sanitary service provider gave our city notice that they would no longer provide this service to the citizens of Bowdon after January 2023. During the past few months, we have been diligently seeking another provider. The lowest bid was provided by Bowdon Disposal Service, which the mayor and council accepted at their February meeting.

Unfortunately, this bid consisted of a rate much higher than the city was previously paying. The increase to the city was $13.50 per cart per month. We have no choice but to pass a portion of the increase along to our customers. You are currently paying $16.00 per cart per month. The new rate will be $26.50 per cart per month, which is an increase of $10.50. This increase will be effective on the bill you receive in May.

The current service provider will continue to service your cart(s) through Thursday, March 30, 2023. Please leave your carts at curbside through Monday, April 3, 2023.

The new service by Bowdon Disposal Service is to begin the first week of April 2023, with new red push carts. Please take note of the following:

  • Cart delivery will begin on Wednesday, March 29, 2023 and should be completed by Saturday, April 1, 2023.
  • It is imperative that you do not trade, move, or take someone else’s cart.
  • Each cart will have a chip implanted that will have a specific location with customer and routing information.
  • Pick-up service will begin on Tuesday, April 4, 2023.
  • Pick-up schedules are as follows:
    • Tuesday, April 4: East side of Hwy 100 and east toward Carrollton
    • Thursday, April 6: West side of Hwy 100 and west toward Ranburne, AL.

We appreciate your support and understanding as we transition to this new service provider.

Thank you for being a major part of the City of Bowdon. If you have any questions or we can help you, please feel free to contact us at 770-258-8980.
