Trash Collection

Trash disposal costs $10 per month and is added to your monthly water utility bill. When you sign up for trash disposal service, the City will provide you with a trash cart (either 32 or 64 gallons). Both cart sizes carry the same $10/month fee per trash cart. Please note that businesses located in the Central Business District that receive twice weekly trash collection receive a $20 charge on their water utility bills.

We understand there may be customers who will want to switch their 32-gallon cart to the larger, 64-gallon cart. You may do so by calling the Citizens First Information Center at 434-856-2489 (CITY). You will still be able to purchase blue bags should you have more trash than your cart can hold with the lid closed.
