Christiansburg Fall Cleanup
This year’s Fall Cleanup will be held October 2-15! To make it easier on our collection crews, please place cleanup items within 10 feet of the street pavement and separate them from your regular trash.
Please do not block drainage ditches, gutters, sidewalks, water meters or sewer cleanouts. The Town is not responsible for any items left at or near the street that residents did not intend to have collected. Please note: piles that do not comply with cleanup rules will not be collected.
Please also separate materials by type (i.e. pile bagged leaves, tree limbs and trimmings separately). Loose materials must be placed in bags/containers not exceeding 32 gallons. Leaves must be bagged. (If you do not want to bag your leaves, you can place loose leaves out during Loose Leaf Pickup, which runs from November 1 to the end of December, weather permitting). There is no charge for items picked up during Fall Cleanup.
Though special collection trucks follow regular garbage routes, cleanup may run a day or two behind trash collection schedules, depending on volume. If it is nearing the end of the cleanup cycle and your items have not been collected, please call 540-382-1151.

Will the Town pick up household waste?
The Town does not pick up household hazardous waste. Please do not include these items to be picked up. Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) (including paint, pesticides and cleaning chemicals) is waste that is considered to be: toxic, poisonous, corrosive, reactive, flammable or combustible. Read the label on products to determine if it is a hazardous product. Words like “poison,” “danger,” “warning” or “caution” will alert you of the potential hazard. Please dispose of these items at one of the New River Resource Authority’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection events. Learn more at www.newriverresourceauthority.org.
What can you do with old paint?
The Town will only collect paint cans if they are open and dry. Please do not include any wet paint for pick up.
What can you do with electronic waste?
If you have electronic waste (i.e. televisions, computers), please contact the Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority by calling 540-381-2820 or visiting their website: http://www.mrswa.com/.
