County Collection Customer Notices

These notices are intended for customers with collection service provided by Fairfax County Government. If you have private collection, please contact your hauler.

Yard Waste Delays

There are contractors on route servicing yard waste customers. The contractors will collect materials in compostable paper bags and small bundles of yard waste. The designated rigid yard waste containers will be serviced by our regular Fairfax County yard waste collection crews.

  • Crane work by the contractors for compostable yard bags and small bundles of yard waste for Tuesday is complete.
  • Our regular Fairfax County yard waste collection crews are currently servicing yard waste carts and rigid carts for Monday and Tuesday customers.
  • Crane work by the contractors for compostable yard bags and small bundles of yard waste for Wednesday customers started on Monday, October 18.

If a customer has yard waste in a rigid container or any other yard waste container the contractors cannot collect, please be assured that our regular collection crews will stop by and collect it. Upon completion of Tuesday routes, we will begin with Wednesday customers.

Please continue to place your yard waste at the curb so that we can collect when crews are able to come through your neighborhood.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
