Are there requirements for sidewalks and yards?
Yes. Centreville's Code of Ordinances requires that property owners maintain yards and sidewalks as follows:
- Property within the Town shall be kept free of weeds, grass and/or other unhealthy vegetative growth that exceeds 12 inches in height.
- Sidewalks shall be kept in good repair in accordance with Town standards.
- Property owners shall keep sidewalks free of weeds, trash, debris, snow, and ice.
Household trash is collected on Wednesdays, as is recycling. Please recycle!
► For more information on recycling please see the FAQ above about recycling.
In the event Wednesday is a holiday for the trash collection contractor, trash collection will take place on the following day.
A maximum of six trash cans will be picked up per dwelling unit or business. Cans may not exceed 50 gallons in capacity.
All trash cans must be placed at the curb on Wednesday by 6 a.m., but no earlier than 6 p.m. Tuesday.
All trash placed at curbside must be in a trash can with the lid secured.
Yes. Trees, limbs or branches should be placed curbside (not in the roadway) by 6AM Mondays. Public Works crews will pick up yard waste as early in the week as practical, but priority is given to maintenance of water and wastewater pipe repairs and other critical functions.
Branches must be bundled and may not be longer than 3 feet. Logs longer than 3 feet do not need to be tied in bundles. Logs and bundles of branches may not weigh more than 50 pounds.
Leaves and grass clippings should be placed in boxes, cans or baskets, not bags.
Other bulk waste should be placed curbside no later than 8am on Tuesdays, but no earlier than 4pm on Mondays. A $15 bulk pick-up sticker is required. These may be obtained from the Town Office.
No tires larger than 600x16 will be collected or placed for collection on the street or curb. A $15 bulk pick-up sticker is required for every two tires.
Appliances must have doors removed before pick-up. Notify Town Hall before putting an appliance out for pick-up. Refriferators and air conditioners require a $20 bulk pick-up sticker to defray the cost of removing chemicals.
Amounts larger than a small pickup truck load (50 cu feet) will not be collected by the Town.
Construction debris from building renovation or repair shall be removed by the contractor, builder, or property owner. The Town will not collect construction debris.
The Town will loan a truck to any resident or business owner in town for large loads of bulky waste or construction debris. The fee for use of the truck is $50.00 plus additional charges for landfill tipping fees over one ton. Please call the Town Office to schedule use of a truck.
