NOTICE FROM PATRIOT DISPOSAL SERVICE: 
GLASS RECYCLING COLLECTION CHANGE


Effective November 11, 2019, Patriot Disposal will no longer pick up glass as part of recycling.


Customers are encouraged to re-use glass containers, bring them to a purple bin located in Fairfax County, Alexandria, Arlington, and Prince William County, or put them in with the regular trash for pickup.


Beginning on November 11th, recycling that contains glass will be considered contaminated and will not be picked up.


As you likely have seen in the news recently, U. S. recycling markets have a long way to go to recover from the impacts of China’s import ban but over time the markets should adjust and create domestic demand for our materials.


Please visit the following web sites for additional information regarding glass recycling:
• Patriot Disposal - Recycling @ patriotdisposalservices.com
• Fairfax County - Glass Recycling @ www.fairfaxcounty.gov/publicworks/recycling-trash/glass


We anticipate that Loudoun and Arlington Counties may soon implement the same policy. If you have any questions, please contact our customer service department at 703-257-7100.

RECYCLING & YARD WASTE UPDATES -- 6/17/19:

6/17/19 – RECYCLE UPDATE:
Please be advised that Patriot has started to deliver new recycle bins throughout the community. These bins are larger and taller than the recycling bins used previously, and therefore, not everyone may want one of these larger bins. All residents may decline delivery, or, are asked to leave unwanted bins outside with a note indicating, “DECLINE DELIVERY” with the house number/street name. For those who choose to keep these bins, they are for recycling only on the Wednesday pick up day. If you prefer, you may use your own bin for putting out recycling. Please contact the Conservancy with any questions.

 

6/17/19 -- YARD WASTE: Please be advised that yard waste will be picked up for Burke Centre residences only from biodegradable or paper bags, or, from a receptacle. The weight must be less than 50 lbs. Please do not use plastic bags to discard of yard waste. Thank you for your cooperation.
