RE: Plastic Bags for use with Yard Waste Still Accepted in Fairfax County
Dear Valued Customer,
We informed you recently of the County’s new rules for yard waste collection, speciﬁcally about plastic bags. The regulatory change that affects how yard waste is collected has been postponed indeﬁnitely. Therefore, at this time there will be no change to our collection procedure and we will accept plastic bags. If anything does change later, we will notify you at that time. However, we would like to encourage the use of bio-degradable paper bags and or the use of personal containers marked for “yard debris”.
The best alternative is to leave grass clippings on the lawn, where they will quickly biodegrade and add nutrient value to your lawn. If you choose to use plastic bags, please remember they must be clear plastic bags. We do not accept black plastic bags or bags that cannot be easily identiﬁed as yard debris material.
We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing to provide you with the highest level of service.
