Special Announcement - Yard Debris Collection
This in from American Disposal Services:
Following the new Fairfax County Ordinance, effective Monday, April 19th American
Disposal Services will no longer accept or collect yard debris material placed in plastic bags.
To ensure collection, all yard debris material must be placed in reusable containers labeled yard debris
or biodegradable compostable waste bags to ensure collection. We are unable to collect or return for
any yard debris that is not properly prepared. For more information, please visit the Fairfax County

Are certain types of plastic biodegradable and compostable bags accepted?
Unfortunately the answer is NO. Yard debris in any type of plastic bags is not acceptable, regardless if the plastic bag is recyclable or not. All yard debris must be placed in PAPER bags or a personal reusable container clearly marked yard debris.
