Trash Collection

Curbside household trash collection is provided each week to Roanoke County residents and many businesses. Bulk and brush is collected on a biweekly basis. Streets are divided into either 'A' Weeks or 'B' Weeks. Please check our Find Your Collection Day page to determine which day and week your street is listed as.

Important Notes

Please be aware of the following conditions:

  • Small amounts of debris from homeowner generated small remodeling or repair work may be placed out for collection with bulk pickup. Please do not put these items in your garbage container as they may damage the automated garbage collection vehicles.
  • Do not put hot ashes or charcoal in the automated container. If your container is damaged due to fire or misuse, you will be responsible for replacing the container at your own expense.
  • Tires: The County will pick up four regular car (16" or smaller) tires, without the rim, per bulk collection pickup. Do not put tires in your garbage container.
