No. The services come together as a package. If you register for one service, you must pay for the other.
No. The services come together as a package. If you register for one service, you must pay for the other. The Town found this is the most cost-effective way to provide the service and make it viable. If curbside recycling was an add-on option and not required, the Town would not be able to provide the service at such a low rate.
In order to cancel your recycling service, you must also cancel your garbage service, which you may do by visiting the Finance Department on the first floor of Town Hall at 100 E. Main Street or by calling (540) 382-9519 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

To accommodate curbside recycling, there will be a $5 increase to the garbage collection fee, increasing monthly service from $17 to $22, beginning July 1.
You will be automatically signed up for curbside recycling if you are a current garbage customer. While garbage collection through the Town of Christiansburg is not mandatory for residents, those who have the service will be required to have curbside recycling. If you are not a current garbage customer, you will need to sign up for both garbage and recycling in order to have the service. We will not be sending out sign-up forms. Call the Finance Department at 540-382-9519 to sign up for garbage and recycling, or visit Town Hall at 100 E. Main Street.

There are two recycling cart sizes available – 96 gallons and 65 gallons. You will receive the cart size that matches your current solid waste cart. For example, if you currently have a 96-gallon garbage cart, you will receive the 96-gallon recycling cart. If you currently have a 48-gallon garbage cart, you will receive the 65-gallon recycling cart. If you are currently paying for two solid waste carts, you will receive two recycling carts.
You’ll need to downsize to one garbage cart. Hopefully, with the addition of a recycling cart, you’ll produce less garbage!
We allow a one-time cart exchange for free. For example, if you have a 96-gallon cart and would like a 65-gallon cart, just call our Public Works Department at (540) 382-1151 or our Finance Department at 540-382-9519, and we’ll get the cart switched out for free.
Your cart must be placed either in the street with the wheels against the curb (preferred), at the end of your driveway or on the curb/yard beside of the street. If the placement of your cart in the street will obstruct traffic, then it should instead be placed at the end of your driveway, on the curb or at the edge of your yard beside the street. Please make sure that the cart is level, the arrows on your cart’s lid points toward the street and your cart is at least three feet from all fixed objects such as mailboxes, trees, street lights or parked vehicles. Please leave a three foot gap between carts placed next to each other. Please remember that all recycling must be placed inside of the provided cart to be collected.
Please have your cart placed for pickup by 8 a.m. If you place your cart out later than 8 a.m., your recycling may not be collected.
The best place to store your cart is in an indoor area such as a garage or shed. You may also store your cart outdoors, to the side or rear of your house.

2. If the weather is very cold for several days, you could have frozen water lines. Please call the Town Hall and we can check if the water is frozen at the meter.
3. Sometimes the Town has to work on the main water lines and will disconnect water to a section of residences. Please call the Town Hall to see if we are working on or near your street.
1. Flush the toilet and allow the tank to refill.2. Once the tank is full, turn off the intake valve under the toilet so no more water comes in.3. Make a pencil mark at the water level inside the tank (not the bowl).4. Let the toilet sit all day (if you are gone during the day) or overnight. Make sure the toilet is not used during that time.5. After that period of time, check the water level in the tank. If the water level has dropped below the pencil mark, there is a leak at the flapper seal at the bottom of the tank and it will need to be replaced.
If you have more than one toilet in the residence, you can do the check on all the toilets but one, leaving it free for use, and then check the one after all the others have been checked.
Should you find a leak, do make arrangements for repair as soon as possible. Keep your receipts or invoices as we will need a copy for our records. Contact the Town Hall at (540) 382-9519 to notify us of your leak and/or repair.
