Yard Waste Collection Alert: Clear Plastic Bags Will Still Be Accepted

Ready to get back outdoors and start sprucing up your yard? Fairfax County had planned to ban the use of clear plastic bags for yard waste collection, but that restriction is no longer taking effect.

Clear plastic bags will continue to be accepted. However, American Disposal Services, our trash hauler, would still like to encourage the use of biodegradable paper bags or personal containers marked “Yard Debris.” Non-clear plastic bags are NOT accepted.

Visit American Disposal Services’ blog for additional information, and refer to the WoodLynne Trash & Recycling Collection Guide for general reminders regarding our community’s policies. Continuous violators can be assessed a fee and/or have their parking and pool privileges revoked, so please make sure you are in compliance.

As always, feel free to email the board at woodlynnedir@gmail.com with any questions or concerns. Happy spring!
