UPDATE: Due to the high volume of items placed out for Spring Cleanup after recent winter storms, crews are running two days behind their collection schedule. Please remember to place all items out by April 27. As long as items are placed out by this date, crews will continue collection until everything has been picked up. 

-------

Spring Cleanup is almost here! Public Works crews will be collecting Spring Cleanup items April 14-27.

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

Though special collection trucks follow regular garbage routes, cleanup may run a day or two behind trash collection schedules, depending on volume. If it is nearing the end of the clean-up cycle and your materials have not been collected, please call (540) 382-1151. 

What items will the Town pick up? 
Furniture
Appliances, including sinks and tubs (limit two per household)

Tire rims (no limit)
Tree limbs, trimmings, brush
Tree stumps
Leaves (bagged only)
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)

What items will NOT be picked up?
