County to Provide Special Trash Pickup for Affected Residents of the Pleasant Valley/Country Club Manor Neighborhoods
On Saturday, Sept. 25, Fairfax County will provide a special debris pickup for residents of the Pleasant Valley and Country Club Manor neighborhoods that were impacted by a tornado on Friday, Sept. 17. This Saturday’s special trash pickup will begin at 7 a.m. and residents are encouraged to have debris at curbside by 7 a.m.
The county has already provided one such pickup and removed approximately 140 tons of debris, primarily trees and tree debris.
Construction debris should be separated from brush/tree debris. Materials should be placed at the curb in an accessible location away from obstructions such as parked cars and fire hydrants. Please avoid placement of materials under overhead wires that may prevent equipment and staff from accessing debris.
Small amounts of material may also be disposed through your normal trash collection procedures. Follow the normal guidelines provided by your trash hauler and prepare any tree limbs and debris according to their standards for collection.
Residents can also self-haul trash, debris and recyclables to the facilities at the I-66 Transfer Station, 4618 West Ox Road, Fairfax or the I-95 Landfill, 9850 Furnace Road, Lorton. A fee will be charged at the facilities for the material that is self-hauled.
For more information on the trash pickup, call
the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services at
703-324-5230, TTY 711. A special resource page has also been established
on the county Web site – www.fairfaxcounty.gov/emergency/pleasantvalley/
– where residents of the two neighborhoods affected by the tornado can
find additional information.
