[ARCHIVED] Bulk Waste Collection Resumes in Petersburg

Bulk Waste Collection Resumes in Petersburg, Colonial Heights, and Hopewell 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residential curbside collection of bulky waste and yard waste was suspended on April 20th in Petersburg, Colonial Heights, and Hopewell. This change was implemented to help minimize the potential for exposure to the COVID-19 virus for the workers collecting trash.

Effective Monday, May 18, residential curbside bulky and yard waste collection will resume. Regular weekly trash and recycling collection services will continue as normal. 


Regular household garbage must be placed in the container for collection and set out by 7am on collection day.

Place any extra bags, bulky waste, and yard waste next to trash carts on the curb on your regular collection day by 7am. 

Bulky waste includes large appliances, furniture or other waste material that cannot be placed in the Cart due to size.  Bulky Waste does not include Construction Waste or Hazardous Waste, which is not collected, nor allowed to be placed in the cart or at the curb.   

Yard Waste must be bundled and tied together not exceeding 4 feet in length or 75 pounds and grass clippings and leaves must be bagged and placed next to the Cart. 

In Petersburg, bulky and yard waste is limited to an amount that does not exceed 10 cubic yards. The pile cannot exceed 9 feet long by 9 feet wide and 3 feet high.

Please contact CVWMA at 804-425-0500 to report bulk and yard waste out for collection or visit for more information.
