Blue Trash Bags
The specially marked 33-gallon blue bags are required for trash collection if you have overages of trash that won't fit in your trash cart or if you do not have a City issued trash cart. The blue bags may be purchased at most grocery and convenience stores. The bags are packaged in rolls of five (5) and cost $6.25/roll.
What can go in the blue bag?
You can place household trash and/or yard waste in the blue bag. Do not place hazardous waste, sharp objects or liquids in the bag. The City, along with the Regional Services Authority, will continue to hold a Hazardous Waste Collection Day three times each year on the second Saturday of April, June, and October at the Concord Turnpike Regional Landfill. For more information on the Household Hazardous Collection, visit www.lynchburgva.gov/hhw.
How will violations be handled?
Anyone not using either a trash decal or a pre-paid bag will receive a warning. If the violation continues, the resident will be charged a $25 fee. To avoid costly fees please purchase a decal or use the specially marked blue bags.
