[ARCHIVED] Storm-Related Road Closures and Large Item Pickup Info



July 23, 2020

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Updates to road closures and storm debris info relating to Wednesday’s storms.


  • Old Lynchburg Road between Middleton Lane and Azalea Park is still closed pending removal of overhead communication utilities.
  • Monte Vista Ave between JPA and Middleton Lane is blocked pending removal of overhead communication utilities.


The City of Charlottesville encourages residents who have debris resulting from recent storms to take advantage of the Large Item Pickup service which may be scheduled in person, by mail, or online. All residential addresses receiving City-operated curbside trash and recycling collection are eligible for this service.

In Person (by appointment only)

  1. Pay the fee at the Treasurer’s Office.
  2. Call 434-970-3830 to arrange a pickup date.

By Mail

  1. Mail your completed Application for Large Item Pickup (PDF) and applicable fee to the Treasurer’s Office at the address on the form.
  2. Call 434-970-3830 to arrange a pickup date.


  1. Submit the Large Item Pickup Form and Payment online.
  2. Call 434-970-3830 to arrange a pickup date.

The City is not offering free pickup service thus residents should not pile up debris on the curb unless they have made arrangements for a pickup.

The non-refundable fee for a large item pickup appointment is $35 for the first pickup, $50 for the second, and $100 for the third and all subsequent pickups. The pickup fee schedule uses a rolling 12-month period that is measured backward to the date of initial purchase. The maximum volume limit per pick-up is one dump truck load (10’ by 8’ by 6’). Customers who have debris that exceeds the maximum volume may purchase additional pick-ups.

Once you have scheduled a pickup, please place debris by the curb for collection. Residents are reminded to be careful of where they place debris piles. Do not stack or lean debris near or on trees, utility poles, or other structures including fire hydrants, water meters, backflow prevention devices or mailboxes as that makes removal difficult and could lead to property damage. Avoid blocking the road, driveways, and sidewalks.
