Sanitation & Recycling

The City of Blue Ridge contracts with an outside waste management company (Sanitation Solutions) for solid waste collection. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection.

Trash pick-up is FRIDAY Morning (trash needs to be out no later than 7:00am on Friday to assure pick up).  Only household trash will be picked up and it must be in the trash tote provided by the City.
