Disposal Services and Recycling Information for Lynchburg Residents

The City offers bulky waste pick-ups but not for C&D debris

Construction and demolition (C&D) is not accepted as part of the City’s bulky waste trash collection program. You’re responsible for properly disposing of this debris either by dropping it off yourself at the local landfill or by renting a dumpster and having that company drop off the debris for you.

Tips to save money on renting a roll-off container

An informed customer is one that can get the best deal. Here are some must-know tips:

  1. Get quotes from multiple dumpster rental companies to make sure you’re getting the best deal
  2. Avoid additional fees, such as overages and late fees, by being wary of these potential add-ons and planning accordingly
  3. When in doubt about dumpster size, go with the bigger one. The difference in price is usually less than the cost of paying overage fees.
  4. Ask the rental company if they accept “clean loads” for recycling. If so, you may get a discount rate since recycling the debris typically costs them less compared to the tipping fees at local landfills.

How to estimate the volume of waste, junk or debris you have

This is one of the most difficult aspects of choosing a container size. Luckily, rental companies are experienced in handling a wide variety of loads ranging from household junk to roofing shingle debris. They can help you choose the ideal container size for the job.

You can also estimate the amount of debris yourself by physically measuring it and converting it to cubic yards. 1 cubic yard is equal to a 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. item or pile of debris. Due to the varying container dimensions, bulky or irregularly shaped items may consume quite a bit of volume in the container. It’s best you discuss this with your dumpster rental provider.
