AmWaste Error


PLEASE NOTE: AmWaste bills have been sent out and there is a mistake on the bill. Instead of subtracting the “Recycle Credit” of $1.31 it was added. When you get your bill please pay the $60.69 amount that should have been billed. Please let your neighbors know. Thank you so much for helping us to get the word out and thank you to the citizen that brought this to our attention.


Dear Saraland Neighbors,

As most people are aware, yesterday, April 3, 2020, Governor Kay Ivey announced a Stay-At-Home order for the State of Alabama.  We will be posting a copy of this order on this page.  The City of Saraland has authorized our public safety officers to enforce this order.  In addition, under emergency powers granted to me by the Saraland City Council, I am ordering a curfew for the City of Saraland between 10 pm and 5 am until April 30, 2020.  In view of the emergency situation that we are encountering, I strongly feel that this action is necessary for the health and safety of our residents as well as the protection of their property.  A proclamation of the curfew follows.  We have included specific exceptions in the order to allow for essential travel during this curfew time period.  The curfew will become effective at 10 pm tonight, April 4, 2020.  For the next couple of days, Saraland police officers will be giving warnings rather than citations for curfew violators to give the city time to adequately publicize this order to our residents.

Please do abide by the state health order as well as the local curfew. I would also like to encourage our residents to follow the latest CDC recommendation on wearing a clean cloth mask or face covering when visiting public areas.  I appreciate all of the cooperation and support we have received to date from our citizens, businesses and churches.  The positive attitude demonstrated by Saraland residents has been extremely gratifying.  We will continue to take appropriate action to combat this pandemic and continue our efforts to move forward from this unfortunate crisis.

Dr. Howard Rubenstein

A Message from the Mayor

Greetings from the City of Saraland!

The City of Saraland is perfectly nested in north Mobile County in beautiful southwest Alabama. The natural resources, City services and great location only compliment the wonderful people in this community. The City is experiencing phenomenal growth with the construction of new subdivisions and new commercial and retail development. Saraland is called the Gateway to Progress. Saraland, however, IS progress.

Come experience all that Saraland has to offer. We’re certain you will love it!
