The holiday season is almost here and with all of the giving, receiving, feasting, and decorating comes some additional trash and recycling at the curb. The City of Manassas wants to make sure that you know when to set out your trash and recycling.
Christmas and New Year’s Day
There will be no trash and recycling collection on Tuesday, December 25 and Tuesday January 1, in observance of the Christmas and New Year holidays. The collection schedule will be moved by one day.

Wednesday è Thursday

Thursday è Friday

 Friday è Saturday

Did you know that between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, the amount of trash produced in the United States increases by an estimated 25%—that’s about one million extra tons of garbage every week.

Here are a few tips to help you get through the holidays:

  • Check your trash and recycling carts for damage and order replacements before the holidays. Call the Trashline on (703) 257-8252 with the serial number of your current cart and they will help you schedule your cart replacement.
  • Cardboard is a very valuable recycling item. Make sure that you remove all the packing material and flatten your boxes for recycling collection. Styrofoam, plastic packing bags and plastic wrapping cannot be collected as curbside recycling.
  • Set aside a box or bin to make recycling easier for your guests. By making it easier for your guests to recycle – clean-up can be easier too.
    Make sure that you set your trash and recycling out the night before your collection day. Leaving trash and recycling out at the curb all week long can put a damper on everyone’s holiday. Being a good neighbor means being good about your trash and recycling too!

The City of Manassas is always here to help with information about trash and recycling. Call (703) 257-8252 if you have any questions!
