Arab Street Department

The Arab Street Department is responsible for a wide range of services to the citizens of Arab. These include maintenance of streets and right of ways, drainage maintenance, brush and trash collection, mowing and city signage.

Brush and Trash Collection

Leaf pick-up starts up in November and will be collected on the same schedule as brush (see below). Please place leaves in heavy duty trash bags if possible. Please DO NOT place leaves on top of brush. Homeowner brush and trash is picked up curbside once monthly.

Any brush or rubbish generated by a contractor WILL NOT be collected by the city.

There is a $3.00 fee to be paid at city hall for the collection of all televisions, computer monitors, and microwaves.
