Bulk Collection has been suspended temporarily.

The bulk collection service for the City of Waynesboro has transitioned 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 three 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. 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 10 - 14 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:
