Trash and Recycling

ADVISORY 3/26/2020:


Please, only set out your carts! 

With everyone being home, a lot of spring cleaning is going on. This is great. However, this is not so great for our trash and recycling folks. Did you know that the COVID-19 virus can live on cardboard and plastics for a long time? That's why we are asking folks to use their carts. We want to protect you and the people who are collecting your trash and recycling. Without them, we are in a "heap" of trouble. You might say a "trash heap" of trouble.  

So please, follow these rules:

• Use City trash and recycling containers only. Don't set out loose bags of trash.
• Set trash and recycling out the night before collection day. 
• Don't set out Excess trash/Bulk waste/large items.
• Pull carts back to the back or side of your house following collection (or use an enclosure.) 

We are all in this together.

Five Things to Remember About Trash and Recycling

  • Always use City containers when setting out your trash and recycling. Do not set out loose trash or plastic bags.
  • Only recycle plastic containers #1, 2 and 5, metal cans, cardboard, paper, and glass. Make sure all recycling is empty, clean and dry.
  • Call ahead on (703) 257-8252 to schedule collections for large items that do not fit in your container, TVs, computer monitors, air conditioners and other appliances. Not all items can be collected curbside.
  • Set out your yard waste in brown paper yard waste bags. Bundle and tie loose branches. No compost, soil, sand or stone will be collected.
  • Always pull your container back from the curb following collections. Store containers at the side or in back of your home, or use a screened enclosure for storage.

All residents and property owners are responsible for making sure that they follow City guidelines for trash and recycling collection. Do your part to help keep Manassas safe, clean and beautiful.
