Update to Temporary Change to Yard Waste Collection

Due to ongoing labor shortages, you may be experiencing delays in the collection of yard waste. As a temporary measure to address this issue, residents who have small amounts of yard waste should place it in the container with their trash as space allows. Yard waste that does not fit in with trash should be set out separately. Yard waste may not be collected on regular collection days, so residents are asked to leave their bagged yard waste at the curb until it is collected.

For more information, read the full news story.


At Home Curbside Pickup

If you have collection service through a private company, please contact them directly for schedule information. Visit Permitted Solid Waste Collection Companies.

For customers with trash collection through Fairfax County Government, see schedule and service details specific to these Sanitary District Customers at County Collection Customer Notices
