The Henrico County Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is providing residents with free curbside pickup of tree limbs and other yard debris that was left by the storm on Monday, June 25.

To receive the special service, residents must register in advance by calling (804) 501-4275. Registrations will be accepted from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 2 through Monday, July 9, excluding the July 4 holiday and weekend.

DPU will pick up only residential yard debris, including small trees, limbs and branches, that meets the following criteria:

  • Debris must be placed curbside or along the edge of a nearby public road;
  • Limbs must not exceed four inches in diameter or four feet in length;
  • Limbs and other debris must weigh less than 50 pounds; and
  • Small items, including sticks, must be bundled.

Root balls, trunks and logs from large trees, bagged yard debris and storm-related household waste, including scrap wood, drywall, roofing materials and spoiled food, will not be collected as part of the special storm-related service.

DPU expects to complete all pickups in the coming weeks. A schedule for pickups cannot be guaranteed and will be based on the number of registrations received.

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

UPDATE: Due to the volume of requests, residents should expect about three weeks for pickup.
