News from the Board

Fairfax County has joined several neighboring communities in the D.C. Metro Area to ban the use of plastic bags for yard waste. The change took effect on Monday, March 1, and requires county residents who have curbside collection of yard waste to use reusable containers or paper yard waste bags to set out grass, leaves, and/or brush. Although the new rule took effect March 1, the Solid Waste Management Program will be exercising enforcement discretion for a six-week period to allow time for customer notification and education on the new rule. Enforcement will begin on Monday, April 19, 2021, and plastic bags set out at residences may be left uncollected.

The yard waste webpage has lots of information about how to manage yard waste. Find the solution that works best for your situation. If you use a landscaper, make sure that they are aware of the change. If you have questions, you might want to check out these FAQs.
