Recycling and Trash
homepage > recycling and trash

Residents with private trash collectors should contact their trash collector directly for information regarding trash/recycling collection.

Due to unsafe road conditions, trash and recycling collection for Fairfax County customers on Thursday and Friday collection routes has been suspended for Thursday, March 5, and Friday, March 6, 2015.

Thursday and Friday collection customers will receive trash and recycling collection on Saturday, March 7, weather and road conditions permitting.

Please make sure trash and recycling carts are accessible and not blocked in by snow or frozen in place to ensure collection.

Thank you for your patience.
