    Refuse Collection

    Trash is collected from residences and small businesses weekly (Monday - Thursday), 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Trash carts should be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on collection day.
    The City of Lynchburg provides one trash cart at no charge to all residences and small businesses. An Annual Trash Decal  for each trash cart must be purchased at City Hall or online at lynchburgva.gov/citylink (prorated after October).
    If a decal is not purchased, trash should be placed in specially marked 33-gallon City of Lynchburg prepaid blue bags which are available at most convenience and grocery stores. The bags are packaged in rolls of five (5) and cost $6.25/roll.
