Will the Department provide materials for my community-wide clean up event?

The Department offers trash bags, gloves, and the use of safety vests for organized community clean-ups.  It will also arrange for a county truck to remove the filled bags of trash. At least a two week’s notice is required to provide these supplies and services, and clean-ups are scheduled on a “first come, first served” basis.

A problem was reported but was not fixed. Why?

The majority of the rejected problem requests relate to areas that are not county property or beyond the county right-of-way. Please click here for right-of-way information (there should be a link here to go to the section under Roads and Bridges relating to Right-of-Way questions).

Will the Department clear dead animals from the road?

The department will clear dead animals from the road only if they are deemed a traffic hazard.

Who do I call with emergencies when the Department is closed?

If there is an emergency situation (such as a downed tree on a public road or other dangerous road conditions) outside of office hours, please call the Sheriff’s Department at (205) 752-0616 to report the problem.
