Residential Trash Collection


The Street Department provides trash collection for residents within the City of Jasper once per week.

Landlords provide the trash service for residents in apartment complexes having more than four units, the City does not provide this service.

The City of Jasper follows a "pay as you throw" trash program. Each trash bag must have a trash tag/sticker attached. Trash tags are $1.50 each (effective Oct. 01, 2010) and may be purchased at the following locations:  Jasper City Hall, Jasper Holiday Foods, Hometown IGA, Circle-A Food Mart, Jasper Marathon, Northside Citgo, Sunset Citgo and Jasper Wal-Mart.

Trash bags shall not weigh more than thirty (30) pounds.

When affixing a trash sticker to a trash bag, we suggest you double the sticker over the tie twist so the ends of the sticker is back to back. This will prevent the sticker from coming off during inclement weather.

 Do not place your trash bags behind parked cars or anywhere which is not clearly visible from the street.

Trash bags must to be placed at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. the day of your collection & not before 6:00 p.m. the day prior to your trash collection day. 

Please do not assume we run the route the same time, same way, each week. We have various drivers who may travel the route differently or other ongoing projects which require a change in the time/direction of the route.

To determine the day of your trash collection, click here, or contact the Jasper Street Department at (812) 482-1130.

Please refer to the City of Jasper Trash and Recycling Calendar, local newspaper or social media for Holiday closings which may affect your regularly scheduled trash collection day.
