Yard Waste BinWe would like to thank our customers for their patience during this unprecedented and challenging time. Arlington residential curbside yard waste collection will resume on Monday, Aug. 31 after a temporary suspension that began in May due to contractor staffing issues related to Covid-19.


During the first week of service restoration, please limit yard waste to your green cart and up to five paper organics bags. This will help ensure collection crews are not overwhelmed and can complete routes on schedule. Curbside collection of larger yard waste material like brush and limbs remains available by appointment.


Household Solid Waste Credit

The County will be issuing a $10.77 credit to the Household Solid Waste Rate, which is assessed on customer’s quarterly water/sewer/refuse utility bills. 


Temporary Drop-off Locations Closing Sept. 4

The County’s temporary yard waste drop-off locations at the Trades Center and mulch pick-up site at North 26th Street and Yorktown Boulevard will be unavailable after Friday, Sept. 4.
