Public Services Department
Our public services department consists of garbage pick up and trash/debris removal. Please see the information page regarding garbage and trash pickup and the rules that need to be followed in order to provide services for the residents and businesses of Northport.
* Please also remember that the routes will begin at 6:00 a.m. during the summer months from Memorial Day until Labor Day to help prevent heat-related illnesses for crews. Please plan accordingly during this time.
If you should have any problems or questions please feel free to call Public Works at (205) 333-3003 during our regular business hours.

The Construction department is responsible for installing storm sewers, repair of curbs and gutters, drainage ditch maintenance, repairing potholes, and assisting other City departments with various construction needs.
If you need to report a pothole or drainage problem please call Public Works at (205) 333-3003. Please indicate the address (or nearest address) of the issue you are calling about so that the crews can quickly find and repair the issue.
Also please do not put grass clippings, leaves, etc., into the storm drains. This will help to keep the drains from getting stopped up. Property owners have responsibilities which, if neglected, can affect drainage systems on both private and public property.
