Trash & Recycling


Trash Pickup

Trash collection in the Cluster is on Mondays and Thursdays. Pickup of recyclables is also on Thursdays (more recycling information below). There is no service on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Trash should be placed at the curb in sealed containers (not plastic trash bags) that are animal proof either early the morning of pick-up day or the evening before.

Yard Waste

The cluster contract with Republic Services includes a scheduled pickup each Wednesday from March to through December of yard waste including grass clippings, branches, leaves and other garden and landscaping debris. Branches should be cut down to four feet and bundled or bagged. You will be notified by email of a date approximately two weeks after Christmas when trees can be left on the curb for pickup. Learn more about Yard Waste pickup here or call Republic Services at (703) 818-8222.

Bulk Items

The cluster contract with Republic Services for trash removal and recycling includes the pickup of large bulk waste, including some appliances, mattresses and furniture. However you must schedule the pickup of large bulk waste in advance by calling Republic Services at (703) 818-8222. Learn more about bulk pickup here.
