Roanoke Changes Bulk, Brush Pickup Times

The City of Roanoke's Solid Waste Management Division will change the collection schedule for bulk and brush beginning the week of July 6, combining different types of pickups.

These items will be picked up on alternating weeks, and will coordinate with the recycling schedule as follows:
  • Bulk items the same week as bottle and can recycling.
  • Brush the same week as paper recycling.
Bulk and brush collections are for those items not suitable for placement in the large blue plastic trash containers. Bulk pickups include items like furniture and appliances.

Brush pickups are for large volumes of yard waste. Guidelines for placing bulk and brush at the curb will remain the same.

Bulk is limited to six items any given week. Brush must be no more than a pickup truck load, and larger branches are limited to 3 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length. All items must be placed in a visible location away from mailboxes, fences and overhead wires.
