To ensure their team is prepared for your bulky/special pickup, it is necessary for you to schedule your removal with ADS's Customer Support Team.  The Customer Support Team may be contacted at 703.368.0500 or https://americandisposal.com/virginia/customer-service/

Contractor Recommendations



One of the challenges of owning a home is the responsibility for maintaining it, often by finding good contractors.  And one of the nice things about living in a cluster of similar homes is that we can often benefit from the wisdom and experience of our neighbors.  With that in mind, the cluster has decided to publish on our website lists of recommended contractors.  The list will generally reflect contractors used by cluster members. 

The first list is in the Documents section of the website under Homeowner Information and addresses roof repair contractors. 

We welcome input from cluster members on contractors for this or other areas.  You may email suggestions to wpca.reston@gmail.com or contact any Board member or officer.

Yard Waste Collection Change - March 1, 2017

Yard Waste Collection Changes Coming in March, 2017

American Disposal Services, our trash collection contractor, has given us early notification of an upcoming change taking effect March 1, 2017 regarding the collection process for yard waste removal. Material placed in plastic bags will be rejected at the local yard waste composting facilities. ADC has been informed that plastic bags of any kind require additional processing and render the finished compost less attractive. Therefore ADC is modifying its current collection policy to avoid additional costs that would be necessary if we accept material in plastic bags.

ADC will accept yard Waste material in compostable paper yard waste bags or personal containers clearly marked “Yard Debris Material”. These paper yard waste bags can be found at local grocery stores, hardware stores, and through on-line retailers. Beginning March 1, 2017, ADC will no longer be accepting yard waste material in plastic bags.

We will remind you of this change as we get closer to the effective date but wanted to give you a heads up now.  For more information, please see ADC’s notice in the Documents tab, ADS's website at https://www.americandisposal.com/blog/focus-on-yard-waste and Fairfax County’s website at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes/recycling/yardwaste.htm
