Weekly curbside trash collection is available for residents that live within the limits of the City of Emporia.
The City provides each resident with one 96-gallon trash cart. An additional trash cart is available for an additional fee of $5 per month. To obtain a second cart, please contact Public Works at 434-634-4500 and the cost will be added to your next utility bill.
Bulk items, such as furniture or appliances, may be placed at the curb on your regular collection day. However, it would be helpful if you called at least one day in advance to schedule your bulk items for collection.
Spring Clean-up is held in May and runs for two weeks. Residents are encouraged to use these two weeks to dispose of any residential household waste. All trash should be placed at the curb for disposal before 7:00 A.M. on your normal trash collection day.
Leaf collection begins each year on October 1st and runs through January 31st. Grass, leaves and yard or garden waste must be bagged or boxed, kept separate from other refuse and placed at the curb on your normal collection day.
