County Collection Customers
This page only applies to residents with county collection service.
Fairfax County provides trash collection and recycling service to residents who live in Solid Waste Collection Areas (Sanitary Districts). These areas are created through a petition process. Most Fairfax County residences, however, have private collection service. For more information, see "Who Picks Up My Trash."
