Throughout the month of May, the Public Works Department will allow oversized piles of separated yard waste and household debris to be placed at residential curbsides for collection. It also will waive the cost of tire disposal for up to four tires per household. By appointment, crews will collect at no charge heavy debris such as bricks, rock and cinder blocks. For neighborhood cleanups, groups can make an appointment for the use of roll-off containers. Appointments also can be made for grapple “bucket” truck collections. To make appointments for these services please call 434-799-5245.
Please note:The waived restrictions of trash and yard waste collection ends with your last regular scheduled weekday of collection in May.
