Refuse Collection

The City of Waynesboro offers a refuse collection program available to all residents of the city. The program costs $16.00 per month and includes weekly collection of one city-issued 96-gallon can and two annual bulk item refuse pickups.   
On your regular collection day, please place your city roll-out container at your normal collection area, no later than 6 a.m. Privately owned cans will not be emptied. An occasional extra amount will be taken only if bagged, limited to one bag. If there is a need for another roll-out container, report a broken or missing container, call the Utilities Department at 540-942-6643,Option 4, and one will be provided for an additional fee.

In case of missed pick up due to inclement weather, extra bags will be acceptable. The roll-out container should be kept closed in order to keep out water, animals, insects, and to comply with our Health and Sanitation Requirements. Please keep your container in a clean condition, and rinse out occasionally with a garden hose. Because the carts are flammable, please do not put ashes, charcoal, or any other substance that would ignite. Contents of roll-out cart must not exceed 200 pounds. If your container is damaged, stolen, or you are concerned about a missed pick-up, notify the Refuse Department at 540-942-6764.
