Trash/Recycling/Yard Waste Collection
Contractor: Patriot Disposal Services - (703) 257-7100
Yard waste collection will be temporarily halted on Mondays. All yard waste materials should be put out with the regular trash on Tuesdays and Fridays.
This Solid Waste Advisory (SWA) serves as notification to licensed solid waste service providers that the requirement for separate collection of yard waste on a weekly basis is being temporarily modified for approximately two months, effective Tuesday, 8/31/2021.
Beginning August 31, 2021, collectors can, if they so choose, collect yard waste with refuse (i.e., mixed collections) without enforcement consequences. The temporary change is in response to national labor shortages adversely affecting our region. This has had an impact on municipal and private-sector solid waste collectors, who are providing the critical services necessary to promote clean streets and good sanitation.
During this temporary change, recyclables must continue to be collected separately every week. The requirement to separately collect yard waste for recycling will be reassessed in mid-October.
The collection schedule for all homes that are covered by the Conservancy's trash contract are as follows:
TUESDAYS: TRASH & YARD WASTE COLLECTION DAY #1
WEDNESDAYS: RECYCLE COLLECTION
FRIDAYS: TRASH & YARD WASTE COLLECTION DAY #2
