[ARCHIVED] Storm Debris Pick-Up Service For City Residents (Monday Update)

Winter Storm Debris

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 31, 2022


Storm Debris Pick-Up Service For City Residents (Monday Update)


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Heavy debris volume and the weekend snow event have created additional delays. Crews are actively working all routes as quickly as possible and will ensure service is completed for each area.

The anticipated collection schedule is shown below and is subject to change. Collections should be completed by the end of this week.


Storm Debris 01/31

(ORIGINAL RELEASE BELOW)

The City of Charlottesville Public Works Department is providing a free storm debris pick-up service for all City Residents beginning on January 24th and running through January 28th. This will be a single effort to assist with the extensive damage caused by the winter storm on January 3rd. 

Collection dates will correspond to your normal trash pick-up day (Monday trash day would mean Monday storm debris pick-up). Any adjustments to this schedule that may result from volume or operational delays will be provided to the public in as timely a manner as possible. Information can be found by visiting https://www.charlottesville.gov/1061/Waste-Management.

We also encourage City residents to take advantage of the free storm debris disposal waiver being operated until close of business on January 24th at the Ivy Material Utilization Center, located at 4576 Dick Woods Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903.

For residents who have already purchased Large Item Collection service for storm related debris removal between January 3rd and January 11th, they may retain their purchase for use at a future date (no expiration date for use) or they may request a refund by contacting the City Treasurer’s Office.

Only storm related debris will be collected as part of this free service, the City will not be collecting items such as general yard waste (landscape trimmings etc.) or construction debris. General dimension guidelines: storm debris should be between 3 and 10 feet in length, and ideally less than 6 inches in diameter. Residents are reminded to be careful of where they place debris piles. Do not stack or lean debris near or on trees, utility poles, or other structures including fire hydrants, water meters, backflow prevention devices or mailboxes as that makes removal difficult and could lead to property damage. Avoid blocking the road, driveways, and sidewalks.
