Fall Cleanup is Oct. 7-20!

It's that time again - Fall Cleanup begins Oct. 7 and runs through Oct. 20! Please do not place items out for collection until Fall Cleanup officially begins.

Fall Cleanup special collection trucks follow regular garbage routes, but due to volume, the trucks may run a day or two behind your regular trash collection schedule. If it is nearing the end of the clean-up cycle and your materials have not been collected, please call (540) 382-1151. 

To make it easier on our crews, please make sure to place cleanup items within 10 feet of the street pavement and separate them from your regular trash. Please also separate materials by type (i.e. pile loose leaves, tree limbs and trimmings in separate piles). And please do not block drainage ditches, gutters, sidewalks, water meters or sewer cleanouts.

What items will the Town pick up? 
Furniture
Appliances, including sinks and tubs (limit 2 per household)
Passenger car & truck tires (limit 4 per household; no larger than 20-inches)
Tire rims (no limit)
Tree limbs, trimmings, brush

Leaves (bagged only) - If you do not want to bag your leaves, you can place loose leaves out during Leaf Pickup, which runs Nov. 6 - Dec. 29.   
Landscape timbers
Paint cans and sealer cans (only if open and dry)
Barrels / drums (only if dry, ends are removed and did not contain hazardous material)
