Sanitation Department

Responsibilities
  • Operation and Maintenance of Type 1 Subtitle D Sanitary Landfill including automated refuse collection for approximately 5,500 residential customers.  
  • Brush Chipping / Leaf Collection Program including processing brush and collecting leaves prior to delivering them to the landfill's compost area.  The materials are processed and converted into compost and mulch.  Mulch and compost are sold at the landfill to recover costs.
  • Operation of Recycling Center includes the collection of aluminum, corrugated cardboard, and tin cans.  Recycling Center also accepts residential yard waste 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

**Recycling Center - Changes to Acceptable Items**


Due to a global decline in the recycling industry and the financial impact it has on the City budget, the City of Fredericksburg Recycling Center will soon be limiting the types of materials it will be accepting from its customers.

On December 1, 2019, only aluminum, tin cans, and cardboard will be accepted at the Recycling Center.  All other materials will be denied.
