Henrico accepts storm debris at landfills, through pickup service
Henrico residents with debris from Monday afternoon's storm can take it to either of the county's two landfills for free or arrange a pickup for $43.
Residents can take vegetative debris, including brush and tree limbs, to the public-use areas of the Springfield Road Landfill, at 10600 Fords Country Lane, and the Charles City Road Landfill, at 2075 Charles City Road. Both areas are open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Residents also can arrange for a bulky waste pickup for $43 by calling (804) 501-4275. Limbs must not exceed 4 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length. Details are available at http://www.co.henrico.va.us/utility by clicking the links to “Solid Waste” and “Bulky Waste Collections.”
The drop-off and pickup services and their costs are standard for DPU.
