Changes Coming to Trash Pickup in Danville


Danville, VA – There's a change coming to trash pickup in Danville.

Starting January 1, all city residents will be required to use new, approved containers for their garbage.

The new containers must be between 35 and 96 gallons and have wheels.

City officials tell us the new containers allow garbage to picked up more much efficiently.

"By having the trash in the container and using these automated trucks, the driver picks the can up with the truck. It has an automated arm that comes out and drops the can. So the driver physically does not have to pick the bags up and throw them in the truck," said Chris Goss, Sanitation Division Director with Danville Public Works.

The new containers can be purchased from the public works office and range in price from $35 to $50.
