Fairfax County Changes to Yard Waste Collection

For your convenience, yard waste may be collected in biodegradable paper bags, available at major grocery stores, big-box home improvement retailers and most hardware stores.

Yard debris can also be collected loose, in 30 gallon or larger reusable containers marked “Yard Waste”.

Fairfax County and American Disposal encourage you to consider grasscycling, mulching and on site composting as other options for your yard debris.
