Richmond trash crews to begin collecting bulk, brush items

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond crews will begin collecting bulk and brush items bi-weekly starting on Monday, which means residents will no longer have to call and schedule the pick-up.

"Because the every-other-week collections will mirror the bi-weekly recycling schedule, residents will need to know what day recycling is picked up in their neighborhood," the city said.
