TRASH, SPECIAL PICKUPS, RECYCLING

Messages from the Broyhill Park Civic Association

TRASH, SPECIAL PICKUPS, RECYCLING

As many of us are aware, the county has temporarily suspended special pickups, yard waste pickups, and glass recycling. Do not place bulk trash or yard waste on the curb, as it will not be picked up at this time and there is no date as to when service will resume. Do not leave bulk trash items in the front yard; that is considered outdoor storage and is a violation of the zoning code. Items can be temporarily placed in the backyard where they are screened from public view. If you need to get rid of something right away, you can take it to the I-66 transfer station. Disposal fees for residential customers are listed here: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/publicworks/recycling-trash/residential-disposal-fees-and-regulations

Regular weekly trash and recycling pickups are
