Trash Pick Up & Recycling Information

 
 
 
SCHEDULE:
Trash:
Townhomes and Somerset Condominium - Every Monday and Thursday
Single-family homes - Every Monday
Recycling:  ALL Homes - Every Monday
Yard Debris:  ALL Homes - Every Thursday
 
The trucks begin their route at 6:00 AM. The trucks normally maintain the same route each pickup day. However, the amount of trash varies from day to day, and other factors may impact the routes, making it difficult to guarantee a pick-up time. To be assured of pick-up, your trash must be out by 6:00 AM. We encourage you to place the trash out the night before, after 5:00 p.m. No more than 5 bags can be picked up from any one residence in a single day.
 
In the event of a missed pick-up, please notify management as soon as possible at 703-590-1600 or hoa@westridgeva.com.
 
*There is no trash service on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and July 4th (if it falls on Monday or Thursday). Collection will be canceled on days when the weather has made the roads unsafe due to ice and snow. There will be no makeup and trash will be collected on the next scheduled day.
 
PROPER DISPOSAL
In accordance with the Prince William County Code and the Westridge Guidelines, trash is to be placed in a sealed, secure container. This means a covered barrel or covered trash can or a wheeled cart provided by American Disposal. Containers should be placed at curbside in front of your residence. Please do not pile the trash in front of the mailboxes. American Disposal is not responsible for trash that is scattered from containers or bags by weather or animals.
 
CONTAINERS
All of the single-family homes, as well as the homes in the Highland Chase and Knightsbridge townhome neighborhoods, have been provided with a wheeled trash cart. Residents of the Wimbley, Devonwood and Lakeview townhome neighborhoods and the Somerset Condominium are responsible for providing their own trash container. Each home in Westridge has been provided with a recycle cart or bin. Trash carts and recycle containers are the property of American Disposal and are to remain in the property for the new residents when you move. Remember you are responsible for the care and cleaning of your trash cart and recycle container.
 
If your trash cart or recycle container is in need of repair or replacement, please call American Disposal at 703-368-0500. To replace a lost or stolen trash cart or recycle container, please contact the Westridge Clubhouse at 703-590-1600.
 
BULK TRASH
Removal of large items, appliances, furniture, moving boxes and other bulky items that your family does not generate on a weekly basis need to be scheduled for pickup forty-eight hours in advance by calling American Disposal at 703-368-0500. Items should be placed at curbside the day of or the evening before the scheduled pick-up day.
