    Trash Collection

    Trash is collected from residences and small businesses weekly (Monday - Thursday), 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Trash carts should be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on collection day.
    The City of Lynchburg provides one trash cart at no charge to all residences and small businesses. However, an annual decal ($80) for each 64-gallon cart must be purchased at City Hall or online at (prorated after October).
    If a decal is not purchased, trash needs to be placed in specially marked 33-gallon City of Lynchburg prepaid blue bags which are available at most convenience and grocery stores. The bags are packaged in rolls of five (5) and cost $6.25/roll.
