Curbside Collection Schedule Changes Details ->
Please be advised that no changes have been made to our weekly trash (grey cart) and recycling (blue cart) collection schedule. To ensure that all trash and recycling is collected, please make sure that all materials are at the curb/street line by 6 a.m. on your regular collection day.
Trash and recycled material must be placed inside the cart. Trash or recycling placed outside the county-provided cart will not be collected.
No privately-owned carts will be serviced.
As of Monday, March 30, 2020 until further notice, special pickups and yard waste collection have been suspended.
Our customer service phone lines are open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Due to the high volume of calls, you may experience extended wait times.
If you have collection service through a private company, please contact them directly for service information.
This information applies to COUNTY collection customers who receive trash and recycling collection from Fairfax County Government, about ten percent (10%) of residents and businesses in Fairfax County. If you receive services from a PRIVATE collector, contact them directly for information.
