Fairfax County provides trash collection and recycling service to residents who live in Solid Waste Collection Areas (Sanitary Districts). These areas are created through a petition process. Most Fairfax County residences, however, have private collection service. For more information, see “Who Picks Up My Trash.”
Regular trash, recycling, yard waste and special collection services are provided on all holidays except Christmas Day. The Customer Service Center is closed in observance of all county holidays.
