The Town of Christianburg’s annual spring cleanup will begin Saturday, April 10, and continue through Friday, April 23.
For the convenience of the collection crews and to make the collection go faster, the town asks that residents place cleanup items within 10 feet of the street pavement and separate them from regular trash.
Town officials also ask residents not to block drainage ditches, gutters, sidewalks, water meters or sewer cleanouts. The town is not responsible for any items left at or near the street that residents did not intend to have collected. Piles that do not comply with cleanup rules will not be collected.
Residents are asked also to separate materials by type (i.e. pile bagged leaves, tree limbs and trimmings separately). Loose materials must be placed in bags or containers not exceeding 32 gallons. Leaves must be bagged.
There is no charge for items picked up during spring cleanup. Though special collection trucks follow regular garbage routes, cleanup may run behind the usual trash collection schedules. Crews will collect all items that are placed out prior to April 23, but there may be delays. If residents’ items have not been collected by May 1, they are asked to reach out to Public Works directly by calling (540) 382-1151.
Town crews will pick up the following items: furniture; appliances including sinks and tubs (limit two per household); passenger car and truck tires (limit four per household; no larger than 20-inches); tire rims (no limit); tree limbs, trimmings, and brush; leaves (bagged only); landscape timbers; paint cans and sealer cans (only if open and dry); barrels/drums (only if dry, ends are removed and did not contain hazardous material); and railroad ties/timbers (limit five per household).
Town crews will NOT pick up the following items: Construction and demolition materials (including, but not limited to, wood, metal, concrete, stone, etc.); Heavy machinery; automobile parts; kerosene heaters; fuel oil tanks of any size; commercial truck, tractor/trailer tires; hazardous household wastes (such as paint, pesticides and cleaning chemicals); tree/brush materials associated with land/lot clearing for construction; tree stumps; electronic components such as televisions and computers
Public works can provide assistance in ensuring all items are acceptable for pickup. For help, call 540-382-1151.
The Town will not pick up household hazardous waste, which is waste that is considered to be toxic, poisonous, corrosive, reactive, flammable or combustible. Read the label on the products to determine if it is a hazardous product. Words like “poison,” “danger,” “warning” or “caution” will alert you of the potential hazard. These products should not be disposed of in the landfill. Please do NOT place these items in your regular household garbage or recycling. Instead, please dispose of these items at one of the New River Resource Authority’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection events. Learn more at www.newriverresourceauthority.org.
The town will collect paint cans only if they are open and dry. For information on how to dispose of old paint, contact the Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority by calling 540-381-2820 or by visiting their website: http://www.mrswa.com/.
For electronic waste (i.e. televisions, computers), contact the Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority by calling 540-381-2820 or by visiting their website: http://www.mrswa.com/.
