Will the garbage company pick up paint, paint cans, motor oil, pesticides and other hazardous waste?
No. They do not pick up hazardous waste. However, the city does host an annual Household Hazardous Waste Day each April. During this event, Hoover residents are allowed to bring items for disposal that normally are not accepted in their regular trash. Items such as paint, oil, old gas, many types of batteries, pesticides, etc. The date of this event will be posted on the website as soon as it is finalized each year - usually in March.

Note: If you will bring paint to a solid and the can is completely dry, it can be placed with your regular trash. It must be completely dry with the lid off. You can speed up this process by adding cat litter, sand or sawdust.
