Does Your Landscaper or Lawn Care Provider Know?

Spring is here and soon it will be time to think about your lawn again. The next time you have a discussion with your landscaper or lawn care provider, please make sure that they know what to do with your yard waste.

The City of Manassas has specific rules for yard waste collection that differ from other jurisdictions in our area. We often receive complaints that yard waste hasn’t been collected only to find that the yard waste has not been set out correctly.

Here are 5 fast tips for your next conversation:

  • Yard waste must be set out in brown paper yard waste bags or a private trash can.
  • Branches and brush must be bundled and tied for collection.
  • No yard waste in plastic bags will be collected.
  • Yard waste should be set out on Sunday night for collection on Monday.
  • Residents may receive a fine of $500 plus the cost of disposal for any material that is not set out correctly – or left at the curb all week long.

Please make sure that your landscape or lawn care provider knows the rules. For more information, please call (703) 257-8252.
