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 collection routes has been suspended for today, March 5, 2015.

Thursday collection customers will receive trash and recycling collection on Friday, March 6, weather and road conditions permitting. Please make sure trash and recycling carts are accessible and not blocked in by snow to ensure collection.

Thank you for your patience.
