Waste Collection Service

If you are experiencing problems with timely and reliable waste collection, please check with your collector’s website for notices on any changes in collection frequency or scheduled days of collection. Also look for information on how to receive service when collections are missed. If you have additional questions or concerns, let us know at trashmail@fairfaxcounty.gov. Be advised most private collectors will respond faster about their services than our Solid Waste Management Program personnel.
