[Posted March 8, 2021: Dear Burke Centre residents]:
Please be advised that Fairfax County has issued a Solid
Waste Advisory to eliminate the use of plastic bags for yard waste
collection in the County.
immediately, Patriot Disposal will no longer collect yard waste that has
been set out for collection in plastic bags. It is
mandatory that all yard waste be set out for collection in paper bags, or in
a separate container clearly marked “yard waste” on both sides.
Thank you for your cooperation!

Christmas Tree Collection: Christmas trees will be collected the
first two weeks in January. All
trees should be placed on the curb with all tinsel/decorations removed. Trees
should not be placed in plastic bags.
Inclement Weather: Safety in our community is a primary
concern. Roads and/or areas which are deemed unsafe due to snow or ice will be
suspended for collection. Trash and recycling collection service will resume on
the next regularly scheduled collection day, once road conditions permit.

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.
- Please note 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.
