During this event, Hoover residents are allowed to bring items for disposal that normally are not accepted in their regular trash. Items such as paint, oil, old gas, many types of batteries, pesticides, etc. The dates of this event will be posted on the website as soon as it is finalized each year - usually in March.
Note: If you will bring paint to a solid and the can is completely dry, it can be placed with your regular trash. It must be completely dry with the lid off. You can speed up this process by adding cat litter, sand or sawdust.
Submit your request through My Hoover Connect. You may also call a Hoover Public Works representative at (205-444-7543).

The history of the hoop skirt.
As early as the 15th century in Spain, women wore “farthingales” under skirts to show their high social standing. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries in France and England, women wore “panniers” that created the illusion of wider hips and allowed them to display elaborate fabrics and embroideries. The classic Victorian Era hoop skirt is an extension of these. Women’s clothing in high society before the hoop skirt was very impractical; their voluminous dresses were made from several layers of thick, heavy fabric. Suffragettes and other women’s rights advocates fought for a way that women could increase their mobility and freedom while still being on-trend. The hoop skirt allowed women to not be weighed down by heavy fabric. They were mass-produced, which allowed for affordability, and soon hoop skirts were seen across several economic classes including the working class. In the antebellum south this became an equality effort, and newly-freed women began to wear hoop skirts as a way to show their recently gained freedom. The hoop skirt became a symbol of liberation for both black and white women in America across several classes.

There is a common misconception that topping a tree will "revive" it. This is simply not true and no one should be convinced to the contrary by anyone still trying to sell the so called "service" of topping. Without question, topping any species of tree (especially large, mature shade trees) is a harmful practice that leads to structural defects and functional stress. Structural defects can result in limb and branch failures that, on their own, can injure people and damage property. Severe enough limb and branch failures can lead to decay in trees which worsens the tree's overall condition over time. Functional stress can leave trees more susceptible to outside pathogens which can and often does lead to decline and/or mortality. There are no known benefits to "topping" trees but there are numerous, negative and often dangerous side-effects. Here's what the ISA has to say:
Trees are Hoover's most valuable natural resource. The benefits of trees are abundant and in some cases irreplaceable. Protecting and preserving healthy, intact stands of existing trees produces optimal, tree-based benefits. Here's what the ISA has to say:
Topping is a destructive practice with any species of tree. Crapemyrtle can tolerate annual topping but there are zero benefits associated with the practice. Size reduction can be achieved but to the detriment of flower production, winter form and other aesthetics. In addition, plants are left to cope with substantial injury and decay recovery. Crapemyrtle is a diverse species, with varieties and cultivars that grow naturally into numerous sizes, shapes and colors. If your planting area dictates a small crapemyrtle, you can plant a crapemyrtle that stays small. If you have a large space to fill then there's a large crapemyrtle out there that fits the bill. Crapemyrtles properly planted in full sun, maintained as they should be and allowed to grow to their natural size tend to be some of the most beautiful ornamental trees in the landscape. They are a "total package" tree, possessing an assortment of aesthetic and durability qualities. It's unfortunate that many people still miss out on all the wonderful characteristics this species has to offer when it's allowed to just be itself!
