The following information was taken from the Roanoke County website:
Important Items to Remember:
Containers must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
Containers must be removed from the curb by 7:00 a.m. the day following collection.
Be aware of holidays that may affect garbage collection.
Handles must be turned away from the street. The container should be placed at the street with the handles closest to the house.
Do not block access to the can (i.e. mailbox, vehicles).
To help reduce litter on the roadside, residents are encouraged to bag their household waste.
Bulk and brush are materials that will not normally fit in the container. Bulk includes items such as furniture, appliances, mattresses, box springs, water heaters, boxes, etc. Brush is a large pile of tree cuttings, shrubbery clippings, or other loose yard waste (not leaves) that will not fit in your container. If you have a question as to whether or not an item can be disposed of via bulk/brush collection, please call 387-6225.
Bulk items (furniture, appliances, etc.) should not exceed a pickup truck load per collection.
Brush piles can be no larger than a pickup truck load (6'x6'x6'). Brush can be no more than 6 inches in diameter and 6 feet in length.
Place the materials at the curb no earlier than the Saturday before the collection day.
No materials from contracted jobs or landclearing will be collected.
No construction or building materials will be collected.
Landscape timbers will not be collected via bulk/brush collection.
Only four (4) tires, without the rims, per collection.
Packing peanuts should be contained in a box or sealed plastic bag to prevent the styrofoam from blowing around the street.
Rugs/carpet should be rolled in lengths not to exceed 6'.
Paint can only be collected if it is latex or water based and completely dried in the can. Residents may mix sawdust, sand, or kitty litter with wet paint to aid in the drying process.
Please either tape and wrap glass (mirrors, windows, shower doors) or break the glass ahead of time and doublebag the shards. This practice has two benefits: collectors avoid injury due to broken glass and glass shards that spray out of the truck do not lay in the road for vehicles to run over.
Brush cuttings and tree limbs resulting from commercial tree trimming operations (contractor/commercial waste) will not be collected.
Debris waste and tree stumps will not be collected.
Grass clippings and leaves must be bagged.
Any material that may be wind blown must be bagged.
