Yard Debris

Yard debris must be separated from household trash and will be picked up on Fridays for townhomes. Yard debris will be picked up on Wednesdays for estates and single family homes.  Yard debris “season” is March 1-December 24.

Residents must use compostable paper bags for grass clippings and leaves. Personal cans may be used; however, they need to be marked “yard debris”. Containers should be secure so they will not blow away.  Tree limbs and brush must be no longer than 4 feet in length and 3 inches thick in diameter. These items must be tied with rope or twine in arm length bundles. American Disposal will collect a maximum of 10 bags of grass clippings and/or leaves, and 10 bundles of brush per pick up. There will be an extra charge if you would like to schedule additional removal of these items. Please call American Disposal in advance for pricing and to schedule. Items that are bagged and bundled are not to exceed 50 lbs. Concrete, rocks, mulch, sod, and dirt are not accepted. The weight limit for yard debris is 35 lbs. or less per bag or container.  Only during the months of January and February may yard debris be mixed with trash.

Effective January 1, 2021, ADS will no longer collect yard debris in plastic bags.

Trash Removal

Trash removal service will be provided by the Association. The Association has contracted American Disposal Services (ADS), to provide twice weekly, curbside trash removal service. Each Townhome was issued a recycling bin and each Single Family/Detached home was issued a trash can and recycling bin at the beginning of the contract.  These trash cans are the property of American Disposal and shall convey with the unit at the time of sale.  If your unit does not have a can (it should have conveyed at the time of sale), replacement cans may be obtained from the contractor for an additional fee.  Damaged cans will be replaced at no charge.  Please contact American Disposal Service at 703-368-0500 between the hours of 7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. to schedule a replacement as soon as possible. In the case of townhomes, trash should be placed at curb-side in front of the unit in trash containers with lids or securely fastened, or in heavy-duty trash bags. In order to maintain the appearance of the community, homeowners can only place their trash by curbside after 6:00 p.m. the day before scheduled pick-up days, or before 6:00 a.m. on the mornings of scheduled pick-up days.

*If your ADS container is worn or damaged ADS will replace the container at no additional cost to the Association or resident. Any containers lost or damaged due to neglect may incur a fee to replace.*
