Debris Removal and Cleanup Options for Hurricane Sandy
Posted 12:02 p.m.
Cleanup from Hurricane Sandy is underway in our neighborhoods and communities. There are several options available for managing debris generated from this storm:
- All refuse collection companies operating in Fairfax County must collect brush placed at their customers’ curbsides as long as the brush is in bundles ofless than 4 feet in length, weighing less than 50 pounds and no piece is larger than 6 inches in diameter.
- For larger amounts of brush or bulk debris, you should contact your trash collection service provider for information about special collections and set-out instructions.
- You may also self-haul large amounts of brush or bulk debris to the county’s recycling and disposal centers at the I-66 Transfer Station or the I-95 Landfill Complex where it can be disposed of for a fee. The fee structure for brush and tree debris from Hurricane Sandy is as follows:
- Pick-up trucks (residents only): $5
- Single axle stake body and dump trucks (residents only): $15
- Pick-up trucks, single axle stake body and dump trucks (permitted haulers): $15
- Tandem axle trucks including crane/knuckle boom trucks: $32 per ton (to be weighed at scale)
These fees will remain in place until Wednesday, Nov. 14.
