The City of Gardendale seeks to uphold its infrastructure and assets and ensure high-quality services for all of its residents. We endeavor to transport people and goods as safely and efficiently as possible throughout the City. We will also strive to maintain strong and working relationships with City officials, departments, and its citizens.
Public Works Operations
The Public Works Department, headed by Director Jeff Holliyan, is devoted to providing dependable, high-quality service while maintaining and improving the City’s infrastructure. To accomplish this goal, the Department entrusts its employees to operate a range of vehicles such as dump trucks, brush trucks, loaders, leaf vacuums, and tractors.
Gardendale covers a total of 57 square miles in the greater Jefferson County area, encompassing over 500 streets, 400 lane miles of City streets, 30 lane miles of County roadways, and 52 lane miles of State Highways. Furthermore, the Public Works Department has established a beautification program focused on carefully managing the surrounding roads and public spaces.
Brush, Limb and Leaf Policy
Public works offers year-round pick-up for brush, limbs, and bagged leaves. From November to January, leaf vacuum machines will also be available to pick up leaves and pine straw from the edge of the yard. Mulched leaves and grass clippings should be bagged year-round, and debris from any repairs or demolished buildings will not be accepted. Residents are allowed one truckload of trees/brush free per month. If more than one load is needed, a fee of $250.00 per load may be required. Contractors will need to dispose of any debris resulting from cut trees.
