Enhance Your Curb Appeal

The job is not done until the trash is gone

Contractors and property owners are responsible for arranging disposal of debris generated during tree removal, land clearing, repairs, remodeling, reconstruction, and/or renovations. Day-to-day curbside trash service generally cannot accommodate the large amount of debris generated by these types of projects. Contractors can arrange for debris removal as part of the overall job cost or residents can contact a collection company to provide a container to collect and dispose of the debris. A list of collection companies can be found here.

Land Clearing/Tree Removal

Debris from land clearing and tree removal can be recycled. Residents or contractors can haul debris from land clearing or tree removal projects to either the I-66 (4618 West Ox Road, Fairfax) or I-95 (9850 Furnace Road, Lorton) solid waste complexes to be ground into mulch. The mulch is available free of charge to county residents and businesses.

Appliances/Scrap Metal

Small and large appliances (refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, air conditioners), and other scrap metal (lawn chairs, grills, metal framing) can be recycled at the I-95 and I-66 solid waste complexes. There is a $1 fee for appliances with Freon. Other scrap metals can also be recycled at a scrap metal recycling facility.

Recycle Your Building Supplies

Surplus or gently used building supplies can also be donated to Habitat for Humanity's Restore, located at 7770-A Richmond Highway in Alexandria. Call the Restore at 703-360-6700, TTY 711 for details.
