Spring Weed Control & Fertilization

Brush Collection

  1. The town of Blacksburg provides a brush collection service twice a year, during the spring and fall cleanup. To help keep our community looking its best, we encourage you to put brush out as close to the pickup date as possible. Prior to collection, we suggest you use a hidden area of your backyard for brush accumulation.
  2. Fall Cleanup: Monday, October 15th

Items Must be placed curbside by 7am that Monday. Each category of materials will be collected separately. Town crews will only visit each household once for each category of materials. After this date, residents can call the town, (540)961-1851, to arrange a special pickup date for $65 a dump truck load. Alternatively, you may also haul your own brush to the Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority in Christiansburg for a nominal fee or contract privately.
