Trash/Recycling/Yard Waste Collection
Contractor: Patriot Disposal Services - (703) 257-7100
Leaf & Yard Waste Collection
With the staffing challenges in the industry/county in Fairfax County, the county has allowed us to collect leaf/yard waste with our trash collection. Due to the volume of Leaf/Yard Waste in Burke Centre, we are going to service your leaf/yard waste on its original service day – MONDAYS. We ask that it be placed in a paper bag since the compost facility cannot process plastic. Additionally, if you put out leaf/yard waste out in a plastic bag, we will pick it up the next scheduled service day with the trash. This measure will ensure that everything gets collected. Also, please put leaves out as yard waste in either a bag or container – leaf piles raked to the curb will not be picked up.
The collection schedule for all homes that are covered by the Conservancy's trash contract are as follows:
TUESDAYS: TRASH & YARD WASTE COLLECTION DAY #1
WEDNESDAYS: RECYCLE COLLECTION
FRIDAYS: TRASH & YARD WASTE COLLECTION DAY #2
