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
