Refuse Collection


The Town of Orange Refuse Collection runs from Monday to Friday. The dividing line of town is the railroad tracks on Main Street.  If you are located on West side of town your trash will be picked up on Monday & Thursday.  If you live on the East side of town your trash will be picked up on Tuesday & Friday.  Check the refuse collection schedule for more information.  Each residence may not set out more than 4 items per pickup, you may put out 2 trash containers (not to exceed 32 gallons) & 2 trash bags  or  2 containers & 2 tied bundles of bulky refuse (such as limbs or cardboard).  

The Town of Orange also collects brush and yard debris periodically and as our work schedule allows. Please call the Public Works Department at 540-672-4791 if you have a considerable amount and note the collection rules for brush.  Because of the nature of our responsibilities, we may not be able to collect as often, but will make every effort to collect it at our earliest convenience. 

Trash Truck

There are recycle bins for recyclables located at Pro Auto Body on Route 15 South within the Town of Orange limits.  


In the case of a holiday or inclement weather, refuse collection will be delayed by one day. For instance, if your regular refuse pick-up day is on Monday and a holiday that falls on the weekend or on that Monday, your collection will be moved to Tuesday.  Please see the holiday trash collection schedule for more information.
