ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - People cleaning up yard debris from last week’s snowfall can unload it for free at the Ivy Material Utilization Center, located at 4576 Dick Woods Road.

Albemarle County announced Monday, Jan. 10, that residents of the county and Charlottesville have until January 17 to dispose of storm-related vegetative debris - such as tree limbs - at IVY MUC without paying a fee.

“Based on the severity of the storm we had a week ago, the city and the county recognize there’s a lot of residents that are trying to recover to get trees, bushes, limbs, all sorts of things cleared up on their properties, you know, wet heavy snow that did a lot of damage,” Rivanna Solid Waste Authority Director of Solid Waste Phillip McKalips said.

You need to show proof of residency and state that the debris is storm-related. The fee waiver does not apply to commercial vehicles/haulers.

Debris collected will be ground into mulch and available for purchase at Ivy MUC.
