Community Cleanup FAQs


After a pause during the COVID-19 pandemic, Henrico County’s Community Cleanup program has resumed with changes aimed at controlling costs and preventing improper dumping and other abuses.  

Residents of the eligible areas will be notified through brochures mailed directly to their homes two weeks in advance of the event.  

The community cleanup program has played an important role in maintaining healthy and vibrant neighborhoods for nearly 30 years. Modifications to this program were made to ensure that it operates sustainably. Residents are asked to be aware of the items that can and cannot be accepted to ensure a successful cleanup day.

The Community Cleanup program offers qualifying older neighborhoods a day of free curbside pickup of bulky waste, including mattresses, appliances, electronics, and small amounts of yard debris. As its popularity has grown, the program has been hampered by escalating costs and other challenges, such as dumping by contractors or individuals living outside an area scheduled for cleanup and residents leaving out items that do not meet the criteria for pickup. For these reasons, Henrico County does not publicize specific clean-up dates and location in advance.  

Community Revitalization, which manages the program along with the Department of Public Utilities, has implemented the following program modifications:

    • Notifications: A brochure will be mailed directly to residents in eligible neighborhoods approximately two weeks in advance to inform them of their area’s cleanup date. Signs will no longer be posted in the neighborhoods scheduled for cleanup.
    • Budget: Cleanups will be scheduled in the fall and spring and continue as funding is available during the fiscal year. Funding should enable 14 to 16 cleanups per year. With 62 qualifying areas across the county, each area is expected to receive one cleanup every three to four years.  
    • Neighborhood Eligibility: Neighborhoods are selected based on criteria that consider the age of homes and residents, participation in the county’s Real Estate Advantage Program (REAP), higher than average code violations for the area, and other factors. 
    • Acceptable/Unacceptable Items: All items for disposal may NOT be placed at the curb more than three days before the cleanup date. All items must be at the curb NO later than 7 am on cleanup day.
