The Town of Blacksburg Brush Collection

Brush collection service occurs in Blacksburg twice a year during SPRING and FALL CLEANUP. 

Please plan to take advantage of this service. To help us keep our community looking it’s best we encourage you to put brush out as close to the pickup date as possible. We suggest that you utilize a hidden area of your backyard if you are accumulating brush more than several weeks prior to the scheduled pickup date. See date below.

Residents can call the Town (961-1851) to arrange a special pick up for $65 a dump truck load. You may also haul your own brush to the Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority in Christiansburg for a nominal fee. You may contract privately for brush removal. Composting (a neat pile in your back yard) is possible for small pieces.
