Trash and Recycling Collection Cancelled; Private Trash Collection Services Likely Affected
Posted 7:30 a.m.
Due to existing road conditions, Fairfax County trash and recycling collection in sanitary districts (15 percent of county households) has been cancelled for Tuesday, Feb. 17. Collections are planned to resume in sanitary districts on Wednesday (weather and road conditions permitting) on the following schedule:
- Tuesday and Wednesday collections customers will be collected on Wednesday, Feb. 18
- Service will return to normal on Thursday
Please check the trash/recycling county customer website for updated service information.
The impact of the winter weather may also be affecting the operations of private trash and recycling collectors. Customers of private service providers (more than 85 percent of county households) should contact their trash and recycling collector directly for any changes in service. Contact information for private trash and recycling collectors operating in Fairfax County is available online.
If your trash collection service has been postponed until another day please remove your trash containers from the curb in order to enhance the effectiveness of snow clearing operations and to avoid having your containers damaged or buried in snowbanks.
