Attention Broyhill Park neighbors:

Sometime between 7:30pm on 5/18/20 and 9:00am on 5/19/20, a 2019 Honda CR-V Touring SUV was stolen from a Raymondale residence. The SUV has a white exterior and black interior and was parked on Dye Drive at the corner of Dye & Brad Street.

Anyone having a video camera in the area of Brad Street, Dye Drive, Camp Alger Avenue, Brandy Court, or St. James Place that might possibly have recordings of this crew checking cars and/or suspicious traffic in the early hours Tuesday morning, please contact Fairfax County Police, Major Crimes, Vehicle Theft at 703-246-7800.

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
