The Community Cleanup program provides Henrico County residents a free opportunity to dispose of unwanted household items and materials on a select Saturday between March and October.
Notifications: Residents will receive a flyer in the mail to let them know their area’s scheduled pickup date is approaching. In the past, residents were alerted by postcards sent to their homes as well as by signs posted in the community and a schedule published online.
Schedule: The collection schedule is being varied. An area’s pickup date may no longer fall on or near the same weekend it has in the past. In addition, items may not be placed curbside more than three days before a collection day. To be picked up, items must be set out by 7 a.m. on the collection day.
Frequency: Areas may not receive service with the same frequency they have in the past. For example, Highland Springs will be scheduled for one cleanup, rather than two.
Items acceptable for pickup: Small amounts of yard debris (tree branches must be no more than 4 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter, and all yard debris must be separated from other waste); appliances, including ovens, dishwashers, washers and dryers (doors must be removed or secured); small discards must be in a box or another disposable container weighing no more than 50 pounds; electronics, including computer monitors and TVs; tires, excluding wheels (passenger vehicles only, limit two); furniture and mattresses. All items combined must be able to fit into the bed of a standard pickup truck without exceeding the height of its cab.
Items not acceptable for pickup: Large amounts of yard debris, including tree branches, stumps, logs and root balls; household waste; hazardous or liquid waste; paint, oil or gasoline; pesticides; vehicle batteries or parts; construction or demolition debris; lawnmowers; glass, mirrors or windows; and HVAC equipment.
Responsibility for items not collected: Any resident who fails to adhere to the program’s requirements will be responsible for the removal of all uncollected items.
