As the City of Manassas grows, so does the need to find ways to keep our public spaces clean and safe – and our residential areas attractive and inviting. On November 27, City Council has passed a revised Solid Waste Code which introduces new ordinances for trash and recycling.

Notable revisions include:

  • A new limit on Bulk Waste items – no more than 3 pieces of furniture or 2 rolls of carpet per collection.
  • Confiscation and replacement charges for trash and recycling carts left out outside collection.
  • Fines for plastic bags, trash bags found in recycling carts and bins.
  • Fines for obstructing the street, sidewalks and storm drains during leaf collection.
  • A charge of $500 for removal and disposal costs for excess bulk waste and uncollectable items found curbside.
