County and Private Trash/Recycling Update
Posted 7:02 p.m.
To ensure the safety of trash truck drivers, Fairfax County has suspended the requirement for trash and recycling collection for the week of Jan. 25-30 for all collection companies operating in the county. This will provide the opportunity for workers to clear streets to allow travel to resume safely. Snow-covered roads make trash and recycling collection very difficult.
However, collection may resume before Jan. 30; it will depend on road conditions and your provider’s decision.
Residents should pull their containers away from the curb to allow snowplows to clean streets.
- Residents should contact their trash and recycling collection company for questions about when collection will resume.
- County customers can call 703-802-3322, TTY 711, or check online to get details on when collection will resume.
