Loan-A-Truck

In Spring and Summer, we make available on a first come first serve basis the “Borrow A Truck” program for the disposal of refuse or brush. The materials must be placed on the truck so that they will not fall or blow off. If the truck is overloaded or loaded in an unsafe or improper manner, the load cannot be transported over the streets in a safe or legal manner. The City will HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DUMP THE LOAD WHERE IT SITS. Beginning the second week in February until October you may call (804) 733 – 2415 to reserve a truck.Dump Truck
