Curbside Yard Waste Collection Has Resumed Through December

Prince William County News

Written By: Prince William County

Curbside yard waste collection has resumed through December. Curbside yard waste collection, separate from trash and recycling, occurs weekly and is performed by a resident’s trash and recycling service provider. Residents must place yard waste in biodegradable paper bags or containers labeled “Yard Waste.” Plastic bags can no longer be used for yard waste disposal.

Residents, businesses, apartments and landscapers are required to arrange a separate collection of yard waste, leaves and brush. Residents, HOAs and businesses should contact their trash and recycling hauler for information on yard waste collection days, provision of containers and other account-specific details. Like refuse, there is no charge to private waste haulers for yard waste delivered to the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility; however, customers may incur a fee for yard waste collection.

Residents may bring yard waste to the County Landfill or Balls Ford Road in paper bags or containers, not plastic bags. Separated yard waste is made into a soil amendment product or mulch at the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility instead of being landfilled. Compost and mulch products are available for purchase by residents, landscapers and garden centers.

Guidelines on yard waste preparation and other details on this program are available at www.pwcva.gov/yardwaste.
