Trash Collection Changes
Trash Collection System Changes Began October 1, 2020
Trash decals have been eliminated; instead, a $10 trash disposal fee will be added to your monthly water utility bill. This new system also includes a different and improved method to collect your brush and bulk items. Your current trash collection day will NOT change. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during the implementation of this new system.
Under the new system, you no longer have to purchase a decal for your trash cart. Beginning with October 2020 water utility bills, there will be a monthly service fee of $10 applied to your bill to cover the cost of trash collection. This charge will be the same for every customer regardless of the size of the trash cart used. Please note that businesses located in the Central Business District that receive twice weekly trash collection will 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-CITY (2489). You will still be able to purchase blue bags should you have more trash than your cart can hold with the lid closed.
