Trash Pick Up & Recycling Information

Trash service is provided by Disposal Services LLC.  They may be contacted at 703-670-9652. The service schedule is:
Trash Collection: Monday & Thursday
Recycling Collection: Monday
Yard Waste Collection: Wednesday (March – December)
Christmas Tree Collection: First Two Weeks of January
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 pickup, your trash must be out by 6:00 AM. We encourage you to place the trash out the night before, after dusk if possible.
*There is no trash service on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. Collection will be canceled on days when the weather has made the roads unsafe due to ice and snow.
All single-family homes and townhomes in the Highland Chase, Knightsbridge and Wimbley townhome neighborhoods and the Somerset Condominium have been provided with a wheeled trash cart.  Residents of the Devonwood and Lakeview townhome neighborhoods are responsible for providing their own trash container.  Each home in Westridge has been provided with a recycle bin or recycle cart. Trash carts and recycle bins are the property of Disposal Services 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 container and recycle bin.
If your trash cart or recycle bin is in need of repair or replacement, please call Disposal Services at 703-670-9652. To replace a lost or stolen trash cart or recycle bin, please contact the Westridge Clubhouse at 703-590-1600.
