Fredericksburg’s trash/recycling pilot will start May 5

Fredericksburg’s pilot refuse and recycling program start date has been delayed until May 5, according to City Manager Bev Cameron.

The program is to be launched in the College Heights and Darbytown neighborhoods and has been delayed by recent weather and issues in procuring the wheeled carts needed for the project, the city announced.

The pilot program will modify current refuse and recycling practices with once-a-week collection and use of wheeled containers provided by the city (one for refuse and one for recyclables) that customers will bring to the curb.

At the end of six months, discussions will be held to determine if the pilot program period has been long enough to provide quality information, and whether to implement it on a broader scale.
