Falls Church Begins Excess Trash Fees
Home & Garden, News

From the City of Falls Church:

 

 Beginning Wednesday, Aug. 17, single-family detached houses in the City of Falls Church which generate more trash than can be held in the City-provided trash cart will need to attach a sticker to each extra bag.  All effected households have been notified of this change which was approved by the City Council in June.  (A new excess trash fee for town homes and condos begins Sept. 7).

Residents in single-family detached homes must use $1 yellow Excess Trash and Yard Waste Tags for each trash bag that does not fit into their assigned cart.  Excess Trash and Yard Waste Tags can be purchased for $1 each at the Treasurer's Office in City Hall, 300 Park Ave, Suite 103E; Brown's Hardware, at the corner of W. Broad and S. Washington streets; and Giant Food, at the corner of Haycock Road and W. Broad Street.

Customers with the standard 65-gallon trash cart are required to use a Trash Tag for each bag of trash (up to 30 gallons in size) that does not fit inside the cart.

Customers with the smaller 35-gallon cart are also required to use a Trash Tag for each bag of trash (up to 30 gallons in size) that does not fit inside their assigned cart.

Customers with a disability accommodation or unable to use the rolling cart, can set out two bags (up to 30 gallons each) of trash before Trash Tags are required.

Trash Tags should be placed around the neck of the bag or across the bag (close to the top of the bag) so they are clearly visible.

Excess trash bags may be placed inside personal trash containers as long as Trash Tags are clearly visible and the personal container is less than 30 gallons in size and less than 50 pounds when full.

        To change cart size or request a cart, call the Solid Waste Hotline, 703-248-5160.
