Special pick-up delayed

Please be advised that we are are running one day behind on special pick-ups (brush and bulk). Please continue to place your special pick-up at the curb on your scheduled collection day so that we can collect when collection crews are able to come through your neighborhood. If you have a private hauler, please contact your hauler.

Thank you for your continued support of our program.

The Megabulk Program is designed to help customers remove whole trees and large loads of waste from their properties - including construction and demolition waste. The minimum charge for a Megabulk collection is $110, but prices will vary depending on the volume of material. Payment is accepted by credit card or check only. The amount of material must exceed 12 cubic yards.

Material must not be placed under power lines or tree limbs; we require 20 feet of clearance on all sides and above the pile.  

Waste may not be left at the curb for more than 10 days.  You are responsible for removing the material within 10 days, either with the Megabulk Program, another contractor or by self-hauling the waste. Failure to do so may result in Fairfax County removing the materials at your risk and expense.

The minimum cost for county removal of abandoned materials is $250 plus actual labor, equipment and disposal costs.

Call 703-802-3322, TTY 711 to schedule a MEGABULK collection. Fee varies.
