WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- The City of Waynesboro's refuse collection program, Knuckleboom, may be eliminated.

Some neighbors in Waynesboro want the program that picks up bulk trash to stay.

The city council is considering increasing the program's fee or eliminating it.

Waynesboro offers a refuse collection program to neighbors.

Workers pick up things such as lawn debris and shrub trimmings once a month.

Michael Hamp, the City Manager, said it's running behind schedule because of debris from past storms, manpower shortage and equipment problems.

"I don't have a truck that I can haul things away with, as well as a lot of other people that don't have the resources to pay someone to carry that away," said Joni Tarrance, a Waynesboro resident who relies on the service.

Neighbors pay $14.50 for the service; something Tarrance said is enough.

The city council has to hold a public hearing before making any decision. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
