The County is providing the dumpsters and shred truck free of charge to the neighborhood.

This gives you the chance to get rid of things that create Code Violations on your property or just take too much space to store.

– Antifreeze
– Commercial waste
– Fuel drums
– Fuel tanks
– Household hazardous waste
– Motor oil
– Paint/Paint thinners
– Pesticides

Volunteer to Help Your Neighbors

We need community members to help unload items into the dumpster and ensure hazardous waste is not thrown into the dumpster. It’s a great way to get to know others in your community and lend a helping hand.

To volunteer, please contact Ms. Fay Cochran at (703) 361-2646.
