Recycling helps conserve natural resources, save landfill space, conserve energy and reduce pollution. Recycle at the curb following guidelines provided by your trash/recycling hauler. You can also drop materials at one of the Recycling Trailers located throughout the County (sites are subject to change) or at the County's recycling collection centers at the PWC Landfill or Balls Ford Yard Waste Composting Facility. Here is a handy guide to materials that can be recycled in our community. Check out this recyclable items video for the lastest additions to the growing recyclable items list.

If your complex does not have a recycling program, please call 703-792-4670 and we will work with the property manager to set up a program.
