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.

 

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.

Private Trash/Recycling

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.
