A note from Department of Environmental Services

Dear Civic Associations:


Please pass on the following information to residents about trash and recycling services for the Memorial Day Holiday and a reminder about proper disposal of dirt, rocks and soil. Thank you!


Memorial Day Trash & Recycling

For the observed holiday on Monday, May 25, trash and recycling services will operate normally, as will special collection and cart services. Monday customers should leave carts at the curb until collected. However, there will be no mulch delivery and the Call Center will be closed. 


Proper Disposal of Dirt, Rocks and Soil

Please remember items set out for trash should not include dirt, gravel, rocks or soil. These materials are unable to be collected and can cause damage to our refuse trucks. The proper disposal method is to schedule an appointment for drop-off by calling the Customer Call Center at 703-228-6570. Thank you for your cooperation!


Please contact the Customer Call Center at 703-228-6570 with any questions.
