Staunton: Heavy trash collection begins April 2

The City of Staunton will provide heavy trash, brush and limb collection, April 2–6. Residents may dispose of large, bulky items such as old appliances, furniture, household goods, and yard waste. Residents should place items for collection at the curb by 7 a.m., April 2.

This service is available for residential pick up only. If you currently live in an apartment, check with your property manager to find out how trash disposal is handled.

If, for some reason, your items are not picked up by April 6, please leave them at the curb. Our crews will pick them up as soon as possible. You may also call Public Works to report at issue at 540.332.3892.

Exclusions

The City will not pick up hazardous waste items, car batteries, oil-based paint, pesticides, stumps, rocks, concrete, old vehicles, building materials and tires.

Please note that hazardous waste items like kerosene can be disposed of during the Augusta County Landfill’s Household Hazardous Waste Day. That date has yet to be set, but more information is available at http://www.acsawater.com/cleanups.

Tires and electronic equipment may be taken to the Gypsy Hill Park Football Stadium parking lot for disposal between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 14. Any electronic equipment, including televisions, computers, and printers will be accepted and recycled.
