Trash/Recycling/Yard Waste Collection
Contractor: Patriot Disposal Services - (703) 257-7100
Leaf & Yard Waste Collection - Mondays
REMINDER NOTICE: Please refrain from placing yard waste in plastic bags per Fairfax County code. Patriot is unable to collect any yard waste that is put out in plastic bags. Thank you for your cooperation!
Patriot asks that yard waste be placed in a paper bag since the
compost facility cannot process plastic.
Please put leaves out as yard waste in either a bag or container; and note that leaf
piles raked to the curb will not be picked up.
Weight must be under 50 lbs.
The collection schedule for all homes that are covered by the Conservancy's trash contract are as follows:
TUESDAYS: TRASH COLLECTION DAY #1
BURKE CENTRE COLLECTION GUIDELINES
- Trash must be placed in trash cans and put at the curb by no later than 6:00 a.m. on the morning of the scheduled collection, and not earlier than the evening before the scheduled collection day.
- Please make note that no paint, motor oil, insecticide or other toxic/hazardous material (or container) will be collected.
- Per the Burke Centre Conservancy’s Architectural Standards: “for health and aesthetic reasons trash shall be put out in closed, rodent-proof containers...” Patriot will pick up trash disposed of in plastic bags, however, the Conservancy guidelines require that all trash be placed in rodent-proof containers. Plastic bags are not considered rodent-proof unless they are deposited into a metal or plastic container with a lid.
- All trash cans should be clearly marked with the house number to help the Conservancy staff narrow down and identify homes in neighborhoods where it can be challenging to identify who is responsible for improper disposal of trash in plastic bags.
For service complaints and to request special pickups, please contact Patriot at (703) 257-7100. You are encouraged to also report complaints to the Conservancy office for tracking purposes. Please call the office with any questions at (703) 978-2928.
