Propane tanks are limited to camp size 1lb tanks and 20lb grill size tanks. 

Tires, medical waste, electronics and non-residential or out-of-county wastes will not be accepted.

This free drop-off event is open only to residents of Tuscaloosa County. Wastes will not be accepted from commercial businesses, non-profit organizations or residents outside Tuscaloosa County. Conducted by the City’s environmental services division, this event is sponsored and made possible by Nucor Steel Tuscaloosa.

The event will be a contactless drive-thru. Participants will be asked to stay in their vehicle while City staff members unload their items.
