Bulk Collection

The bulk collection service for the City of Waynesboro is transitioning to a Work Order initiated service. This means that before you place your items out for the Knuckle Boom truck, you will need to Submit a Request for collection.  This request can be made in one of four easy and convenient ways:

  1. In person at Public Works Operations located at 900 Essex Avenue;
  2. By calling the Refuse Administration Division at (540) 942-6764;
  3. By faxing an Application for Bulk Collection to (540) 942-6769;
  4. Request a collection online. This can be completed by clicking the Request a Pickup link to the right of this page under "Quick Links".

Submit a request for pick up and then confirm your collection window of 7-10 business days. Then you can place your items out for collection in the agreed upon location. Please keep piles away from fences, buildings, overhead lines, vehicles, and other obstacles.  At certain time of the year our collection time maybe greater than 10 business days, due to a high volume of call ins.

The first and second bulk debris collections for Refuse Collection customers are FREE within each calendar year. The complete fee schedule for the new program is as follows:
