Henrico to accept orders for free residential debris pickup through July 11

Henrico residents can continue to sign up for free curbside removal of storm debris through 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 11.

Orders can be placed by phone at (804) 501-4275 or online at henrico.us/services/storm-debris-pickup/. Residents must place their orders by the end of business Monday to receive the free pickup service.

Henrico County offered the residential program in the aftermath of significant damage caused by severe weather on June 16. The county has received a high volume of requests for the service and is working hard to complete the collection. All orders received by the deadline will be picked up.

For their debris to be collected, residents should ensure it is placed curbside at the time they order the service and no later than 4:30 p.m. Monday.

County crews and their contractors will remove only residential tree and vegetative debris, such as storm-damaged branches, limbs and small trees. Debris should be placed at the curb or near the edge of a nearby public road; it should not block drainage outlets or impede the roadway. Debris should be no longer than 4 feet, with a diameter of 4 inches or less, and weigh less than 50 pounds. Additional requirements are available at henrico.us/services/storm-debris-pickup/.

Residents also can take storm-related tree and vegetative debris at no cost to the public-use areas at Springfield Road Landfill, 10600 Fords Country Lane, and the Charles City Road Landfill, 2075 Charles City Road. Both areas are open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

After registration for the free program ends on Monday, residents can place an order for bulky waste pickup for $43 at henrico.us/utility.
