One-Time Complimentary Bulk Collection began on January 30, 2023

Permanent Updates to the City’s Bulk Collection Program will go into effect on March 1, 2023.  Prior to March 1, Public Works crews will collect existing debris piles to close out the current practice of free pickups. A one-time complimentary cleanup began on January 30, 2023 following the Leaf Collection Area Map. To determine which area you are in and to follow the progress of the crews from one area to another use this Area Completion Map.

Updates are also available on our Pre-recorded hotline at (540) 932-8240.

To ensure you receive a One-Time Complimentary Collection, residents in Areas 1 – 5 should already have bulk items placed out. Residents in Areas 6 – 9 may place bulk debris out prior to February 6, 2023. Should you have any questions about bulk debris, please call our Street Division at (540) 942-6743.

Place any bulk debris out for One-Time Complimentary Collection at your normal trash pickup area.  Complimentary collection will not be provided once Public Works verifies collection is complete within any leaf collection area. Follow the City website and Facebook page for updates on the One-Time Complimentary Collection of bulk debris. 

Residents may also take bulk items (including yard debris) to the Augusta County Regional Landfill located at 749 Christians Creek Road, Staunton, VA 24401. More information about the Landfill can be found at

Bulk Collection Program Changes

The Bulk Debris Collection Program will be changing effective March 1, 2023. The New Program Guidelines will eliminate any free pickups and will charge on the basis of type of debris (Grindable Waste or Bulk Debris) and quantity of debris. See the chart below for a breakdown of costs.
