Increased Yard Waste Fees
The yard waste sticker fee has increased from $0.50 per bag to $1 per bag. Beginning August 17, 2011, customers are required to use a yellow $1 Extra Trash and Yard Waste Tag for each bag of yard waste.
In order to simplify the program, the sticker for excess trash and the sticker for yard waste are the same. You may also continue to use already purchased $0.50 orange stickers; however, each bag of yard waste will require 2 $0.50 orange stickers.
Violations of yard waste and brush collection are subject to a civil penalty of $100 for the first violation and $150 for each subsequent violation. For more information about Solid Waste Code Enforcement, call 703-248-5456 (TTY 711).
