When is my pick up day?

Collection days and times vary based on location. Please contact our office. We do ask that you place your can outside the night before your collection day and at the curb, easily obtainable for our employees to pick up.  If your can or dumpster is blocked we will not collect the trash. 

Can I get an additional trash container?

Yes! For an additional monthly fee you can receive additional trash containers.

My trash container was lost or stolen, can I get a replacement?

Yes, please contact our office to order a replacement container. Additional fee will apply.

Do you pick up on holidays? What about bad weather?

We do not pick up on days when the refuse facilities are closed including but not limited to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. If your pick up day is on a holiday, we will pick it up on the next business day. For updates, please watch our Facebook page. In the event of inclement weather, we will do our best to keep with your regular schedule day however in the event of unsafe driving conditions we ask that you please check our Facebook for updates. If you have valet service, please note that there will be no service during inclement weather or hazardous conditions. It is the customers responsibility to make sure the driveway is clear and safe for the truck. If it is deemed unsafe for us to drive down the lane/drive, at the discretion of the driver, we will collect two weeks of garbage the following week.  

What can be put in my trash?

We collect all refuse generated from regular household waste. If all of your trash does not fit into your can, we will collect two bags of garbage if placed beside the can. Anything over the extra two bags outside the can will result in additional charges. At no point will we collect hazardous waste (including but not limited to paint cans), dirt, rock, sod, hot ashes, animal carcasses, batteries, medical waste, gasoline/motor oil, propane tanks, or water logged trash.

What if I have bulk items for trash?

You would need to make special arrangements, please call our office to schedule an extra pick up, additional fees apply.

In Fauquier and Culpeper Counties, you can put leaves, grass clippings, and bush/hedge trimmings resulting from normal maintenance of your yard at the curb with your regular trash, there will be a fee after two free bags. For Prince William County, there is a mandatory separate yard waste collection. Please message us for more details.
