Trash & Dumpsters
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Starting Friday, September 13th, New Market will have a new trash collection provider. American Disposal Services have subcontracted the remainder of their contract, which expires June 30, 2020, to Ace Refuse from Fredericksburg.
The collection day will change from Wednesday to Friday, beginning Friday, September 13th. We anticipate this change to be smooth and seamless, and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Please contact the Town Office at 540-740-3432 with any questions.
Trash collection is every Wednesday morning, please make sure to have all of your trash to the curb no later than 7:00 am. No trash should be placed out for collection any earlier than Tuesday. Prior to collection day, trash should be stored in containers of metal, plastic or rubber construction and fitted with covers to keep animals out. No household or business shall set out more than the equivalent of four 35 gallon trash cans for collection and the weight of any one trash can should not exceed 65 pounds. Those businesses that generate more trash than the aforementioned limitations will need to contract with a dumpster service. Trash collection is for household trash only, other items such as construction debris, appliances, tires, furniture and other large items will be your responsibility for removing from your property. Some of these larger items may qualify for heavy trash pick up, a service the Town offers twice a year.
The fee for trash collection is $11.00 per month and is tied to your water bill. Residential developments that have contracted for a dumpster or businesses that provide a dumpster are not assessed a monthly trash fee. Trash service is limited to those who are located within the town limits. If you need to remove trash prior to collection day, there is a trash collection station located at Rude’s Hill a few miles north of New Market on Route 11.
A recycling collection container is located across from the New Market Community Center at Rebel Park. Plastics, aluminum cans, tin cans, mixed glass, paper and cardboard are accepted.
