Bulk & Brush Collection

What is Bulk & Brush Collection?

Bulk and brush are materials that will not normally fit into the County-provided garbage container. Bulk includes items such as furniture, appliances, mattresses, box springs, water heaters, extra bags, boxes, etc. Brush is a large pile of tree cuttings, shrubbery clippings, or other loose yard waste (not leaves). If you have a question as to whether or not an item can be disposed of via bulk/brush collection, please call 540-387-6225.

Bulk & Brush Pick Up Schedule

Bulk and brush are picked up on alternating weeks according to an established pickup schedule. For more information, see Find Your Collection Day and see if your street is a designated A Week or B Week. A running calendar of A Week and B Week is listed on this webpage.
