Note: Yard Waste collection is cancelled by order of Fairfax County until further notice. Do not place yard waste at the curb!
The Hamlet Cluster policies cover the storage and placement of trash, recycling and related containers to help maintain property values and sanitary conditions. Key aspects of the policy are:
Trash must be placed at the curb not earlier than sundown the night before collection. Place at curb or common ground area where the truck can clearly see it from the street!
Recycling must be at the curb in standard recycling bins or secured bags.
Yard waste, including grass clippings, tree limbs and leaves, are collected on Wednesdays only. Tree branches must be bundled in 4 ft. lengths or less. Grass and leaves must be in bags, preferably bio-degradable bags availabe from local home improvement stores>
While they collect most household items, you must call in advance if you are placing larger items such as furniture or appliances to be collected. Call Republic directly at 703-818-8222
