Yard Waste Not Accepted


The weather is getting better and while everyone is out in the garden making Manassas absolutely gorgeous, there are rules for yard waste that are not being followed and it is causing a bit of a problem.

  1. Yard Waste collection is on Mondays only. Set out your yard waste on Sunday night for collection on Monday. Please do not set your yard waste out at the curb between Tuesday and
  2. Yard waste should not be mixed in with your trash. All of the yard waste collected in the City of Manassas is recycled and used as compost material. If you think that it doesn’t matter –
           you may be surprised. The more weight we have in our trash, the more we pay for disposal and the more likely rates for our residents will be increased.
  3. Dirt, mulch, compost, sand and rock will not be collected. The Solid Waste Code section 98.1-24 lists these items as uncollectable. These items may be disposed of at the Manassas
          Transfer Station.
  4. The weight of your container matters. The weight limit for all containers is 50 pounds. Wet grass and weeds contain residual fluids that leak out once cut. Please bear in mind that crews
           must lift straight up to empty. Try to keep bags and containers light enough to lift.
  5. Loose branches and brush can be dangerous. Leaving loose branches and brush in the street can pose a hazard to pedestrians and passing vehicles. Please make sure that you bundle
           and tie your material when you set it out at the curb.

If you would more information on yard waste collection, please visit our yard waste page or call 703-257-8252.

The beauty of your garden brightens everyone’s day. Thank you for Keeping Manassas Beautiful.
