Curbside yard waste collection resumes in March

The curbside yard waste collection program in Prince William County runs from March through December.  The yard waste collection, separate from trash and recycling and performed by a resident’s trash and recycling service provider, occurs weekly.  Residents, businesses, apartments, landscapers, etc., are required to arrange a separate collection of yard waste, leaves, and brush.

Residents, HOAs, and businesses should contact their trash and recycling hauler for information on yard waste collection days, provision of containers, and other account-specific details. Like refuse, there is no charge to private waste haulers for yard waste delivered to the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility; however, customers may incur a fee for yard waste collection. 

Residents must place yard waste in biodegradable paper bags or containers labeled “Yard Waste.”  Plastic bags can no longer be used for yard waste disposal.   

Residents may also take yard waste to the County Landfill or Balls Ford Road in paper bags or containers, not plastic bags. Separated yard waste is made into a soil amendment product or mulch at the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility instead of being landfilled. Compost and mulch products are available for purchase by residents, landscapers, and garden centers. 

Guidelines on yard waste preparation and other details on this program are available at

In addition to yard waste, Christmas trees will be collected during the first two weeks of January.
