Trash and recycling is now picked up on Wednesdays. We will still have one trash and recycling pickup date per week.

Yard waste will be collected on Wednesdays from March 1 to the end of December.

HOUSEHOLD WASTE: Bag all household trash and eliminate bags outside containers as much as possible. Place containers 3 feet apart and at least 10 feet from obstacles such as, mailboxes, cars, lamp post. Please limit the amount of waste whenever possible, and remember the 3 R’s – REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.  All trash containers should be placed at the collection points no earlier than sunset on Tuesday evening and reclaimed no later than Wednesday evening.

RECYCLING: Drain all liquids and rinse containers. All cardboard boxes MUST be broken down before being placed into or beside the recycling containers. Recycling is to be placed at the curb in recycling containers. If you don’t have a recycle bin, please call American Disposal Services to request one.

Glass Containers Are Not Accepted in Curbside Recycling

Residents have two options when it comes to glass recycling:

  1. Deliver used glass containers to purple, glass-only recycling containers. The closest purple container to the Mews is at Providence Community Center (3001 Vaden Dr, Fairfax, VA 22031).
  2. Place used glass in the trash.

If you have any questions, please contact the CMCA Board.
