Fairfax County to Conduct Sweep in County Collection Areas
for Storm Debris

 

Over the next three weeks, the Fairfax County Division of Solid Waste will be conducting a sweep in each of the county’s sanitary districts to collect any remaining debris from Hurricane Isabel. Since Hurricane Isabel hit Fairfax County, the county’s collection volume in sanitary districts has increased from 160 tons per week to 700 tons per week. In order to efficiently complete the collection of storm debris, scheduling of all other special collections will be delayed until the sweep is completed. The county will be collecting brush that does not require special equipment for collection on customers’ regular yard debris collection days. The sweep schedule is:

  • Monday Fairfax County Collection Customers - 10/20 - 10/22
  • Tuesday Fairfax County Collection Customers - 10/23 - 10/27
  • Wednesday Fairfax County Collection Customers - 10/28 - 10/30
  • Thursday Fairfax County Collection Customers - 10/31 - 11/4
  • Friday Fairfax County Collection Customers - 11/5 - 11/7


If an area is completed ahead of schedule, sweep collection will begin in the next scheduled area.

This collection is for hurricane debris only. To help expedite the collection process, residents are asked not to add any new yard debris to their hurricane debris until the sweep is completed. This storm debris collection is for Fairfax County trash customers only. Residents whose trash collection service is provided by private haulers should contact their hauler for information on storm debris removal. Those residents who do not know if they have county service can call 703-802-3322, TTY 711.

For more information about the county’s sweep collection, contact Colleen Burroughs, Customer Service Supervisor, Division of Solid Waste at 703-324-5228, TTY 711.
