Fairfax County officials have offered the following guide to debris cleanup from the June 29 storm.
All private refuse collection companies operating in Fairfax County must collect brush placed at their customers’ curbsides, as long as the brush is in bundles of less than 4 feet in length, weighs less than 50 pounds and has no piece larger than 6 inches in diameter.
For larger amounts of brush or bulk debris, you should contact your trash collection service provider for information about special collections and set-out instructions.
For a charge, the county does offer a MegaBulk collection service to collect larger amounts of brush or bulk debris. You may also self-haul large amounts of brush or bulk debris to the county’s recycling and disposal centers at the I-66 Transfer Station or the I-95 Landfill Complex where it can be disposed of for a fee.
During the storm recovery, the brush disposal fee has been set at $5 per load.
