Automated Solid Waste Collection

The Town of Christiansburg provides curbside garbage pickup every week and curbside recycling pickup every other week for $22 a month. Residents registered for the service receive one green garbage cart (96 gallons or 48 gallons) and one blue recycling cart (96 gallons or 65 gallons). 

The $22 monthly fee for this service is billed with residents' water and sewer service.

Please have your garbage and recycling out by 8 a.m. on your day of pickup. Garbage and recycling should not exceed the contents of your garbage and recycling carts. Please note that any garbage placed outside of the garbage cart, as well as recycling placed outside of the recycling cart, will not be picked up.

Hazardous household waste should not be set out for collection with regular household garbage.

What is Automated Solid Waste Collection?

Automated collection is a process that allows one operator to control a mechanical arm that will lift specially designed trash and recycling cans and dump the contents into the body of the truck.

This method saves time, which allows Town crews to serve the community more efficiently.

In addition, using this method eliminates the need for crew members to manually lift trash containers, reducing the chance of injury.
