Litter / Recycle Awareness

Litter Awareness Week

  • Celebrated every year in Hoover during April
  • Poster contest for Hoover third to fifth graders

How Can I Help?

  • Adopt a street or area and pick up trash on a regular basis
  • Carry a litter bag in your automobile
  • Check commercial dumpsters to be sure they are closed
  • Make sure trash containers have secure lids
  • Pick up after your pet. Pet waste pollutes our water
  • Secure loose items in recycling bins
  • Set an example for others, especially children by not littering


Invasive plants are a big problem in Alabama. They spread and aggressively replace native species in natural areas, right-of-ways and residential yards. This causes loss of natural habitat for wildlife and threatens endangered species.

You can help by removing these plants:
  • Chinese Privet
  • Japanese Honeysuckle
  • Kudzu
  • Mimosa
  • Wisteria


  • Hoover curbside recycling
  • Hoover Household Hazardous Waste Day
  • Alabama Environmental Council
  • Recycling center 2431 2nd Ave N. Bham
    • Takes glass and many other items
