Street & Environmental Services would like to encourage all of our residents to help us keep Decatur Clean by 1) closing all waste container lids, 2) bag all household waste prior to placing it in the cart, 3)remember to place leaves, grass clippings and other yard debris in your grey cart and not in or on drainage structures, 4) call our office (256-341-4740) to report any unauthorized disposal of waste.


The Street Department has completed the re-routing of the sidewalk at the City Cemetery. With the new sidewalk, landscaping and other aesthetic improvements, the Washington Street entrance complements the true beauty of the City Cemetery.
