Refuse and Recycling


Trash and recycling collection is on a regular schedule.

Please make sure that your carts are visible for the crews and that you call ahead to schedule collection of larger items.

Please note that crews are not permitted to go on private property. Carts and large items are only collected at curbside.

What to do when it snows

Snow and bad weather can often make setting out your trash and recycling difficult and even hazardous to your health. Here are a few tips to make your winter trash and recycling collection easier:

·        Stay in touch: Check the City of Manassas government channel, website, Facebook page or call the Trashline on (703) 257-8252. Trash and recycling collection may be postponed or delayed when road conditions are poor.

·        Make it easy to see: Set your trash out in hard sided containers with tight fitting lids. Black and white trash bags set at the curb can be hard for the crew to see in the snow. Please use your City trash and recycling containers.

·       Think before you set out bulk waste: Setting out large items in bad weather can be dangerous for you and for the crew. Snow and ice can make lifting heavy items difficult and may lead to accidents. Please call ahead to schedule bulk waste collection.

·        Report damaged carts and bins: Freezing cold weather can be hard on plastic containers causing them to shatter and break. Call the Trashline on (703) 257-8252 as soon as you see damage and we will replace your container for you on the next scheduled delivery day.

·       Have patience: Our aim is to collect your trash and recycling in a timely manner. Our contractor will be checking the safety of road conditions all night before they postpone or cancel service. Sometimes a storm may not be as bad as it seems and collections will follow a regular schedule. We will let you know as soon as there are any changes.

Thank you in advance for your patience and for being good neighbors. If you need additional assistance or advice, please call the Trashline on (703) 257-8252.
