Fredericksburg ready to launch trash/recycling pilot program

Fredericksburg City Manager Bev Cameron said the city will launch its pilot program for once-a-week curbside recycling and trash collection on June 25.

The program originally was to begin on April 1 but that date got pushed back to May 5 because of challenges related to the winter weather and difficulty obtaining the containers needed for the program.

Cameron said in his report preparing the City Council for Tuesday’s meeting that the wheeled carts have been shipped and should be distributed to customers in Darbytown and College Heights in time for the June 25 launch.
