[ARCHIVED] New Carts for City Trash Customers


Updated October 30, 2023

The vendor who is delivering the new trash carts is moving so quickly that most carts will be delivered to City trash customers by November 2, 2023. Customers are asked to move your new cart off the curb now.  You are asked to put your old cart, with your current household trash, out on your regular pick up day this week. Your trash and your old cart will be removed this week.  Your new cart is for next week’s trash pickup, please.

Updated October 20, 2023

The Fredericksburg Public Works Department is upgrading the carts being used by City of Fredericksburg trash customers. The new carts have the FXBG logo stamped on the side and are microchipped for location and inventory control.

Customers should expect the new carts to arrive on their normal weekly trash collection day. Deliveries will begin with Monday customers on October 30th.  Here is what we are asking customers to know and how they can help with a smooth cart trade out:

  1. Place your old cart out for regular collection to be emptied by the regular compactor truck crew.
  2. A different city truck will follow and remove the old cart after it has been emptied.
  3. New carts will be delivered by the cart manufacturer in a separate delivery.

Due to collection, removal, and delivery variables, the new cart may arrive before the old cart is emptied and/or removed. Customers are asked to leave old carts on the curb for removal. When your new cart arrives, please store it off the curb and use for all future collections.   

Customers may call the Public Works Department at 540-372-1023 to report any issues with the cart exchange.
