Yard Waste Delays
Please note we have several Contractors along with our Fairfax County Yard Waste Crews on routes collecting yard waste in compostable paper bags, small bundles, and rigid carts of yard waste. Please be advised of the following yard waste updates.
We have started yard waste collection for Thursday customers on Friday, October 22, 2021. We will continue to service Thursday routes until all customers are complete. Upon completion of Thursday routes, we will begin with Friday customers.
Please continue to place your yard waste at the curb/street line so that we can collect when crews are able to come through your neighborhood.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
